We’ve come a long way from the classical analytic mandate that psychotherapists serve as blank screens for their patients’ projections. Yet, how therapists can most effectively use and reveal themselves remains controversial. This presentation will explore the unique complexities of therapist self-disclosure in group treatment and help participants clarify their feelings and boundaries in regard to revealing themselves (and being revealed) in their groups.
