Detailed Description

Self-disclosure is a very hot, current topic. Rich with detailed case material, the book tackles such compelling questions as: •when and how self-revelation can enhance healing and change •What types of disclosure may be harmful •Why either party may fail to reveal important information •The impact on disclosure of race, gender, cultural, and sexual orientation •How to use disclosure to strengthen the therapeutic relationship •Special considerations involved in disclosing to children. A separate chapter discusses supervision, covering how supervisors and supervisees decide what to share with each other, what kinds of disclosures each is likely to find helpful or unhelpful, and how this issue affects the quality of the alliance and the work that is accomplished.
