16.15-16.30Final questions and closing comments.
Increasing research suggests that relationship between the therapist and client is an essential part of successful therapeutic work. But what makes for a successful therapeutic relationship, and how might this be experienced by both therapist and client? How might trust be established, safe spaces held or ruptures or misunderstandings repaired? How might a sense of real connection be formed and cultivated? This conference will seek to examine how we have, and can, cultivate the therapeutic relationship across psychotherapeutic modalities and approaches, with a focus on relational depth, means of expression, cultural influence, and compassion.
