ACST 101: Client Stress: Symptoms and Sources

Eric Scalise, Ph.D. and Ken Nichols, Psy.D.

Stress has certain implications for clients that include the depletion of body and brain functioning. The challenge is to take stress seriously as soon as possible and find a meaningful balance between being committed to working hard, constructively and in the context of individualized boundaries.

ACST 102: Client Resistance, Difficult Clients and Effective Confrontation Skills

Eric Scalise, Ph.D. and Ken Nichols, Psy.D.

The temptation is to personalize or control those who come in with a resistant attitude, but resistance is a natural process and message from the client. Do not personalize it or professionalize it. Embrace it and make it part of therapy and the treatment strategy. This session investigates techniques used with resistant clients and how to most effectively deal with confrontation as a therapist.

ACST 103: Integration: Applying Biblical Principles to the Problems of Life

Eric Scalise, Ph.D. and Ken Nichols, Psy.D.

Historically, the discipline of psychology has been perceived as having an anti-biblical worldview. Biblical integration gives an eternal perspective that offers incredible scope, depth and breadth to the understanding of the problem, treatment planning and target goals in behavioral changes.
