Self-Disclosure in Therapy
Traditionally, therapists have learned to remain neutral and nonreactive so as not to interfere with the client’s free association and access to fantasies or the development of a transference reaction. However, times and theories have changed, and the issue of therapist self-disclosure has become a topic of consideration and debate. We, as curious clinicians, may ask ourselves if it is even possible to keep from self-disclosing. This Conversation will explore this issue and how our divulging personal information and induced countertransference might impact treatment.
Participants in this course will learn the following skills:
- Participants will recognize potentially enriching and problematic aspects of self-disclosure under different circumstances
- Participants will identify characteristics and consequences of unintentional self-disclosure
- Participants will examine the analysis of client fantasies regarding the therapist’s intentional and unintentional self-disclosures.
