This paper states that Jeff Rothstein, LCSW, believes that the act of resistance should not be resisted on the part of the counselor because it is a sign the counselor is getting somewhere. The author points out that Rothstein reiterates the common Freudian trope that analysts and therapists should not remain in the patient's or learner's comfort zone, but rather, for the sake of the patient, poke at the discomforting contradictions and fissures, which exist within the patient's consciousness and way of relating to the world. The paper stresses that resistance means a fighting back, and the counselor or instructor may get emotionally hurt in the process.
