As a therapist, have you ever experienced moments of absolute trust, understanding and empathy with a client? Such moments of relational depth can feel like a therapeutic breakthrough for the therapist. But what is the client's experience? And what does the research tell us about the potential therapeutic benefits? This wide-ranging book offers a fascinating survey of the latest thinking and research on in-depth therapeutic encounters. Combining vivid case studies with the latest research evidence, this book: • Examines a breadth of perspectives: from working with young clients to working in groups • Explores relational depth in a wider theoretical context: for example, in relation to dialogue, presence, mutuality and the transpersonal. • Considers important professional issues, such as how relational depth can be assessed and its value in personal development and supervision contexts. By exploring the meaning, challenges and experiences of relational depth, it provides insight into an important dimension of therapeutic practice and, for many, will act as a guide to new ways of thinking about their therapeutic relationships. This book is an essential read for all trainees and practitioners in Counselling and Psychotherapy who want to deepen their levels of therapeutic relating.
