Empowering The Client Role: Do You Know Something I Don’t? – Mamood Ahmad

Event Details

 

What are the reasons for therapy not working, breaking down, stagnating, become inefficient, or seemingly ending prematurely? The traditional answer is that it is something about the relationship, approach, therapist, or clients readiness. While all of these are possibilities, in this session, I explore a further possibility that its because clients can be confused or unclear how they can use the construct of therapy (including themselves) within it.

While the journey or experience of therapy cannot be bypassed (no quantum therapy machines available yet!), I invite you to reflect on what in practice makes therapy work, including the clients role, and whether educating consumers about therapy, including access to 3rd party client supervision and resources, has a significant part to play in scaffolding the clients therapeutic process and thereby reducing dropouts, making therapy more efficient, correcting misinformation, reducing harm, and activating client engagement. By working proactively in educating consumers of therapy, we are doing our fair share in informing clients about how they can use therapy to its potential.
