I am a therapist just like you...
B. Nilaja Green, PhD
...beyond endless treatment planning books and journal articles telling us to use this or that new evidence based technique, where are the tools that help us to develop ourselves?
The more efficacy studies our fields conduct, the more they confirm the importance of the therapeutic relationship.
And that relationship is determined by the therapist just as much as the client(s)
sitting before us.
Authentic relationships with clients begin with an authentic relationship with Ourselves.
Authenticity requires self -knowledge, not
merely self awareness.
We can't afford not to know about ourselves because our blind spots can cause trouble.
As therapists, we are held to a higher standard.
Our first responsibility is to do no harm. Without self knowledge, at worst we can create harm, at best, our work becomes ineffective.
Consistent reflection and introspection (through writing and other means), nurtures one of the essential ingredients to effective and eventually, masterful therapy... the person of the therapist.
"What is the therapist's most valuable instrument?...the therapist's own self...therapists must show the way to patients by personal modeling."
- Irvin Yalom
