We’ve been taught that clients are supposed to enter therapy, get better, and then graciously leave therapy… but what about all those clients who *don’t* get better? Today on Mental Work, Bron is joined by Brian Cheng (Psychologist) to unpack the dilemma of what to do when client’s don’t get better in therapy. They unpack ?? What accounts for change in therapy (the ‘common factors’ model) ?? Practical ways you can get ‘unstuck’ with complex clients in therapy ? How to take care of yourself when you have clients who are not changing ?? Different trajectories of change.

Mental Work is the podcast unpacking the challenges faced by early career psychologists, so they don’t have to go it alone. Hosted by Dr Bronwyn Milkins.
