  • How are chaos and complexity theory relevant to our work as therapists?

    Approach/issue: Integrative

    As a therapist, have you ever struggled valiantly, but hopelessly against the entrenched resistance of a client who says they are desperate to change, but are actually digging their heels in at every turn, reacting with “yes, but …” to each and every suggestion?
