Bringing Your Authentic Self to Work
Copyright :


Many therapists feel they must hide themselves from their clients in order to be effective. They wonder how they can “be real” with their clients to deepen the therapeutic relationship, while also holding clear boundaries needed for treatment to be effective. In this workshop, we’ll explore how therapists can be their authentic selves, both online and in person, while maintaining ethical standards that protect both you and your clients. You’ll discover: 

  • A model for how to show up authentically and use self-disclosure appropriately 
  • How to show up online as a therapist in a way that gets your message out ethically 
  • Crucial countertransference pitfalls with clients that can rupture the therapeutic alliance
