Self-Disclosure:
An Ethical Approach to "Knowing What to say, When to Say it, and How to Say it"

 

 

Self-Disclosure: An Ethical Approach to “Knowing What to say, When to Say it, and How to Say it”

Live Webinar

Sunday, October 23, 2022

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time)

3 CE Credits - Ethics

Self-Disclosure can be a highly effective tool in connecting with others. In therapeutic situations, a certain amount of disclosure always occurs. Clients can discern or guess at the therapist's socio-economic status, gender, clothing preferences, and marital status, to name a few things, just by looking at the clinician. However, many clinicians struggle as to when to reveal their own personal stories when working with clients.  When clients ask their clinician about their own lives,it is most often a struggle in knowing if they should answer the questions.  In addition, the questions can often seem as if they are a challenge to the “professional expertise”.

In this interactive training, Tonya Logan, Founder and CEO of Kayla’s village, will discuss and use her own story as a case story to teach an approach to disclosure in working with clients.
Participants will be encouraged to view challenges by clients in a positive and strength-based framework.
Clinicians will gain a deeper ability to view clients seemingly threatening questions in a less prejudicial manner.  

Whether mental health professionals are faced with sharing information from their past or present, personally or professionally, they are often unsure of how that information will be perceived.  In this workshop, participants will learn how they can explain challenging information as a model for others to do the same as they move forward rather than hamper growth.
