Mindful Boundaries and Self-Disclosure

August 5, 2022

11:00AM - 2:15PM

$90  -  3 CE

When practiced mindfully and appropriately, self-disclosure in treatment can strengthen the therapeutic alliance while evoking empathy and building trust. Training and consultation can help clinicians learn if, when, and how to self-disclose. Some self-disclosure may be unavoidable, such as appearance, mannerisms, office environment, and nonverbal communication. Practicing self disclosure with mindful boundaries and a focus on the client can be a powerful intervention for normalizing their experience and creating a safer space for self-exploration.
