Thursday Thought — Honouring Resistance by Dr. Allan Wade
On the blog we have praised Allan Wade who, along with his colleagues, originated the response-based approach which has taught us how to elucidate and honor victim’s resistance.
In this clip from a counselor-training DVD Dr. Wade shows us how the response-based approach to therapy exposes violence, clarifies the perpetrator’s responsibility, elucidates and honours the victim’s resistance, and contests the blaming and pathologizing of victims.
