The Use of Self in Therapy, Third Edition explores the value of appropriate personal sharing with clients on the part of the social worker, psychologist, therapist, and physician in order to establish a trusting and powerful therapeutic bond. You will learn why this once-radical concept is now much more widely accepted and is being used with individuals, families, couples, and groups. This new edition expands upon its predecessor with new research, numerous case studies, tables, figures, interviews, and diagnostic criteria. In this important text, you will discover how to conduct inspiring sessions that are deeply spiritual and transcendent to clients. The Use of Self in Therapy explores exposing your inner world in therapy to help clients feel comfortable enough to reveal their own vulnerabilities and life experiences, thus creating a healing atmosphere.
