It is essential that we embody the role of the therapist when we are working with and dealing with our clients. This therapeutic role is SO much different from how we typically deal with our friends and family that it requires conscious thought, practice and assessment . Being in a therapeutic role means listening differently, speaking differently, responding differently and receiving differently then we do talking to our family and friends. It requires using Unconditional Positive Regard t all times, putting judgment aside, putting opinion aside and resisting the desire to "fix" and advise the client.
