Commitment to Change Videos IV, V and VI: 'Tactics--Habits that Block Change'
Copyright 2000.

Tactics are ways of resisting change. For inmates and others in counseling, treatment, or any program for change, awareness of Tactics can reduce resistance and open the door to learning. For staff training, this knowledge is invaluable.

CONTENT: Filmed live in a state prison, Dr. Stanton Samenow interacts with incarcerated men and women. They confront concrete examples of these truths: Thoughts trigger actions. Errors in thinking trigger Tactics. Tactics are ways of acting that cut off communication and allow us to hide from ourselves, shutting out those who would help us change. Tactics help to keep people stuck in dead-end lives.
