Respect-Focused Therapy : Honoring Clients through the Therapeutic Relationship and Process, Hardback Book

Respect-Focused Therapy : Honoring Clients through the Therapeutic Relationship and Process Hardback

Part of the Explorations in Mental Health series

Description

Therapists have a unique opportunity and responsibility to provide a respectful environment for their clients, yet respect has not received adequate attention in the psychotherapy community and related research.

Respect-Focused Therapy: Honoring Clients Through the Therapeutic Relationship and Process sets forth the formulation of respect-focused therapy (RFT), a new approach to psychotherapy that addresses the quality of the client-therapist relationship and therapeutic process.

This volume treats respect as a combination of action, attitude and open-mindedness, urging therapists to recognize their own biases and beliefs and be willing to suspend them for the benefit of their clients.

Using Martin Buber's "I-Thou" relationship as a conceptual model, Slay-Westbrook provides core principles of respect and demonstrates how to incorporate these into the therapeutic relationship to best foster a healing environment.
