Anna Ruddle and Sarah Dilks consider whether therapists should talk about themselves in therapy
Psychologists Anna Ruddle and Sarah Dilks discuss with Psychiatrist Dr Raj Persaud when therapists should talk about themselves, and whey they shouldn't.
FROM THE ORIGINAL PAPER PUBLISHED IN THE PSYCHOLOGIST
As psychologists, we are increasingly encouraged to work
as equal partners with people to overcome problems or facilitate
recovery, as defined by the individual. There is an emphasis
on the common human experience of all parties. So should we be
behaving differently with clients, opening up more, sharing our own
experiences of stress, anxiety and resilience? Or would this be
considered unprofessional and even risky?
