Abstract:

"Traditionally, the therapeutic relationship has been characterized as one in which the patient divulges everything about him- or herself, while the therapist acts as a blank slate, revealing nothing. Yet, as Barry A. Farber shows in this book, this characterization does not describe what really happens in therapy. Drawing on empirical research as well as theory and clinical experience, Farber comprehensively explores the nature of self-disclosure by both therapists and patients, its role in the therapeutic process, and ways practitioners from any orientation can make optimal use of it and navigate typical dilemmas and challenges." "Written in a clear, down-to-earth style, this concise volume addresses a topic of central concern for psychotherapists and counselors from all professional backgrounds, including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, family therapists, clinical social workers, addiction counselors, pastoral counselors, and school psychologists. Graduate-level students will find it an accessible and thought-provoking text."--Jacket.
