CTB-open

Disclosing in psychotherapy can, at times, be very helpful to clients. Personal disclosure should be done with caution and clear intention for the benefit of the client. Doing so strategically can model vulnerability, soften clients own self-judgment, and enhance therapeutic connection.

In this video look for:

  • when disclosure is helpful
  • the impact of shame and judgment on one’s ability to see accurately
  • the possible benefits of strategic self-disclosure
