How to Strengthen the Therapeutic Alliance: Podcast 087

This podcast is the narrated version of my article 3 Supportive Strategies for Strengthening the Therapeutic Alliance.

The therapeutic alliance is a base from which therapy can happen. And in order for that base to develop, we need to be a certain way for our clients.

In this episode I talk about:

  • A real, human alliance
  • Therapeutic alliance, not reliance
  • Emphasize the therapeutic alliance in the way you speak
  • Remember that therapy is a learning situation
  • Heighten expectation through your confidence
