Self-Disclosure in Practice and Ethics...What Can Go Right?

This course will discuss the advantages and pitfalls of the therapist’s use of self-disclosure in the therapy session.  Participants will understand the compelling feelings that cause therapists to disclose information to clients, the idea of role-reversal that accompanies it, and other motivators to self-disclosure. This course will empower clinicians to make ethically backed choices in the use of self-disclosure.  Themes discussed will include: the risk of role reversal, manipulation, companionship that takes place in deliberate self disclosure, as well as the healing components that occur in judicious self-disclosure.
