This article discusses techniques and attitudes which enable directive therapists to motivate their clients. The author distinguishes congruent techniques, where the therapist has no hidden agenda, from judo-like behaviour with a hidden agenda. The judo-attitude and techniques are necessary if there are clear indications that clients have an oppositional attitude towards the therapy or the therapist. It is made clear that this does not refer to a critical attitude, but to a clearly negative attitude.
Furthermore it is discussed that the difference between judo and congruent is not always clear. Examples are presented of interventions that combine congruent and judo-aspects.
Finally, attention is focused onto the ways in which directive therapists may motivate potential clients to bring their family members to the first session.
