All studies show the Relationship between client and therapist makes the Most difference in client outcomes.


Not techniques

#2   Therapist's Primary Role, then, is to

Build & Model Authentic Relationship with client

This requires a relationally healthy therapist

We can only model what we know, so consider . .
How are you at Boundaries?

Do you know how to be Authentic?

How well do you do Honesty?

How well do you handle your own & other's Anger?

Are you able to share Power?

How well do you handle Conflict?

Trust is Earned After Successfully

Building & Modeling Authentic Relationship

Positive Outcomes from Techniques come After Trust

A Healthy Supervision Relationship is also

based on Authenticity

Sherry's Words . .

"I received poor supervision at an externship during my Grad program that left me crying many times, believing I couldn't do anything to please this Supervisor.  I was even scared I wouldn't receive a passing grade yet I got an unexpected A.

It was then I promised myself to become a Supervisor and never, ever treat my supervisees as I was treated .

I absolutely keep to that promise."

"I want you to have encouragement & guidance to grow into the absolute best therapist you can possibly be."

 Supervisory Roles

The Supervisor takes on specific roles with the Supervisee based on the dynamic of the relationship and cases being processed.

These roles include

  • Teacher (Action) for didactic-oriented activities, evaluative functions, and transmitting knowledge;

  • Counselor (Relationship) to help the Supervisee understand their own dynamics and resolve issues affecting counseling; and

  • Consultant (Insight) to provide opportunity for the Supervisee to develop their own conceptualization and plan.
