Resistance is key. Allan Wade, a BC Psychotherapist, uncovered a new depth of understanding how people respond with resiliency, creativity, and previously not celebrated ways of resisting violence and oppression. Such creativity can be found when people respond with silence, mental resistance, a refusal to believe the oppressor, and many other safe ways to respond. As our clients re-story their stories in counselling, they discover new layers of strength within themselves. This discovery and recognition begins to inform the new ways in which they look upon themselves.
