All training takes place at Blackwood, Victoria

The Clinical Training in Resource Therapy (RT) provides participants with a Clinical Qualification in Resource Therapy and is designed to prepare therapists to work with Resource States in a wide range of psychological disorders.

It includes presentation and discussion, demonstrations, and practice in order to prepare therapists to work with Resource States. As participants practice they are able to benefit from immediate supervision in order to visit ways that techniques may be honed or improved.

​The personality is composed of parts and those parts are our Resources. When they are in a Normal Condition there is Psychological Health. Resource States may become pathological into four general conditions.

1. Vaded (These parts hold unwanted Emotions.)

2. Retro (These parts do unwanted Behaviours.)

3. Conflicted (These parts are in Conflict with each other.)

4. Dissonant (These parts are Conscious at the wrong time.)

Resource Therapy enables therapists to respond directly to the personality part that holds the problem. Many therapies allow the patient to speak throughout therapy from an intellectual, talkative, personality part that is not directly related to the presenting issue. Because Resource Therapy attends directly to the personality part that is pathological it is quick and lasting.

RT techniques enables the therapist to learn criteria to diagnose presented issues, and once diagnosed specific RT Actions are ascribed to each diagnosis. The therapeutic process is clear and the treatment regimens are distinct.

The Clinical Training in Resource Therapy will teach, demonstrate and practice both diagnosis and treatment. (Click on the video above or go to

Diagnostic categories and some of their associated issues are listed below.

· Vaded with Fear: (Phobias, PTSD, Panic, situational fear),

· Vaded with Rejection: (Feeling worthless or unlovable, high need for approval),

· Vaded with Disappointment: (Depression, Despair).

· Retro Avoiding (Addictions, OCD, Withdrawal, Eating Disorders)

· Conflicted (Procrastination, Sleep Disturbance, Chronic Fatigue, Cognitive Dissonance)

· Dissonant (Frustration in Coping Ability, Below par performance)

The Clinical Training demonstrates how to assign a specific selection of RT Actions to respond to each diagnosis.

The Clinical Training includes information to understand the formation and nature of Resources, how they interact in the personality, and how best to bring them to the surface and communicate with them to affect change. Below are some of the inclusions covered during the clinical training. Questions will be entertained to include other specific techniques that participants require.

The training also includes assistance for participants to be prepared for roadblocks that some clients manifest.

Overcoming hurdles: When the client has difficulty naming a Resource, when the client has difficulty finding a Resource that can help another state, accessing the desired state,

The training also includes advanced training skills that will help the therapist better work with Resources:

· Resource assessment: assessing the problem, not the person, to know which direction to take in therapy.

· Practice issues, getting clients, referrals.

· Supporting skills and ethical considerations.

· The value and practice of advanced listening.

· Learning to make sure the client’s central problem is the focus.

Note: the Clinical Training in Resource Therapy is designed and presented to meet the needs of participants. That is, the presentation will vary in speed of delivery and detail to topic according to the particular group. Dr Emmerson authored most of the techniques that are presented, therefore depth of coverage can respond directly to the needs of the group.
