ENGAGING RESISTANT CHILDREN IN THERAPY pdf free download. As a child and family therapist, I wrote this guidebook for other child and family therapists. Its purpose is to offer practical ideas to help therapists engage children who are highly anxious, aggressive, defiant, oppositional, and resistant in the therapeutic process. Verbal skills are rarely the strong suit of anxious and/or impulsive, actionoriented kids, yet these children can express their feelings, thoughts, and fantasies when given the proper tools to do so. In my 35-plus years of treating children and supervising others to do so, I have learned that many children need considerable structure in order for them to make constructive use of therapeutic sessions. Often what therapists consider as “resistance” is actually the therapists failure to provide the proper structure, within an appropriate
context, that facilitates communication leading to meaningful dialogue—and it is “dialogue” that is critical for healing.
