Working with Resistance in Group: An Intermediate and Student / New Professional Institute

with Jay Erwin-Grotsky, LCSW, CGP, FAGPA

Often in group, members and leaders end up banging their heads against walls of resistance when they want something to change. We can get stuck trying to undo or break down resistances to having certain feelings and experiences without realizing how this can create even more entrenched resistance. By recognizing and studying the resistances that arise, rather than undoing them, we can learn to understand the person, their history, and how the resistances developed as survival skills in early life. This understanding opens up new ways of working with individual and group resistances that can lead to greater freedom from early defenses.
