The Concept of “RESISTANCE” in Psychology

In a simple language, Resistance is the act or power of resisting to the therapist. When the patient opposing the therapist, or withstanding the therapist.

This opposition (Resistance) by th

e patient is offered by several methods: stop talking, silent all suddenly, not answering the question, ending the session on his/her own decision, force the therapist to make a change in his/her style of therapy, make a joke, or pick a fight with the therapist.Resistance is the sign of progress, and it is very positive sign of improvement in patient. The therapist can identify the root of problem; the therapist gets closer to the source of the anxiety and other problems.

This idea was originally established by Sigmund Freud. It was following his work with patient Elizabeth (1892). This phenomenon was coined “RESISTANCE”  in psychology.
