Whether you regard your comments above as being correct or not depends on how you define "simple way" and "workarounds".

I assume it doesn't matter to you how Mathematica creates the plot but only that the values along the x-axis are reversed from their normal order. If so,

Plot[x, {x, -1, 1}, 
   Ticks ->{{#, -#}&/@Range[-1, 1, 0.5], Automatic}];

does the trick.
