Stuck, stagnation and resistance situations are typical of psychotherapy and lead the patient to a dead end in the therapeutic process. Stuck, Stagnation and resistance also typify many interpersonal situations in organizations and companies, such as employer-employee relations, relations between sales personnel and customers and negotiations, as well as interpersonal situations in which one party is interested in convincing, selling to or bringing about change in the other party.

In the course of their work, managers often encounter "difficult" employees who are "resistant" to any change offered to them. When a manager proposes a new line, a new idea or a new direction, others are liable to resist. Under such circumstances, both sides feel they are stuck.

In recent years we have been witness to a revolution in the treatment of states of stagnation and resistance involving the creation of new psychological, strategic and focused intervention methods. These methods provide effective means of solving problems. As a result, the patient, manager, employee and client understand and feel that the problems have been solved to the satisfaction of all parties.

Dr. Shaul Navon has a great deal of experience and expertise in treating stuck, stagnation and resistance situations in life and therapy.
