Rapport-Building with Resistant Children: Re-Conceptualizing Relational Dynamics
Gold, Joshua M.
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n3 2006
This paper briefly reviews existing conceptualizations of resistance in counseling children. The author posits that resistance is an "expected" aspect of all counseling and offers an alternative orientation toward client resistance based on exploring the child's "helping narratives." Two case studies illustrate the implementation of this intervention and its integration within the rapport-building process of counseling with children.
