Negotiation is inevitable in psychotherapy – getting better at it has been a boon for my clients


www.campnegotiatitioninstitute.com

In this post I am referring to the system of negotiation developed by Jim Camp. I posted  this on a linked-in discussion with fellow negotiation students.

William Chase • One thing that has happened with many of my therapy clients is that they often have quick success implementing valid activity and behavior from the system. This is important for people with emotional problems because they are often demoralized and can really use some quick gratification to build their confidence. Just like me, though, they struggle to sustain implementation of the principles of the system. They may return discouraged at a later time, but since they have tasted that early success, I simply remind them of it. How quickly they forget 🙂 – emotions can really bang up their memory, especially of positives. Now they have decision to make. They did it, they can do it again or not. ” Just tell me NO” . The negotiation is on! Awesome stuff.
