Clinicians have been trained to never discuss personal aspects of our lives, identities and beliefs.  By doing so can cause ethical dilemmas and breaches of boundaries. This training will help clinicians to learn how to utilize their pieces of their professional and personal self to assist clients in the therapeutic alliance and growth process.  In this interactive training, we will identify and discuss the types of self-disclosure that occur in sessions, potential boundary issues related to self-disclosure and theoretical orientations that support ethical self-disclosure.


Specific learning objectives:

1.   At the conclusion of this trainings participants will be able to identify four or more specific therapeutic orientations that support appropriate self-disclosure

2.   Participants will be able to recognize specific ethical standards that can be compromised by self-disclosure and have examples of ethical dilemmas

3.   Attendees will be able to learn compare the five types of self-disclosure and be able to describe clinical practice examples
