What if you found your voice?

Posted by:

What if you spoke with a clarity, warmth, and genuineness that was uniquely you?
 
What if you ditched the low expectations, modesty, and fear of vulnerability for possibility?
 
What if you shared something real, and honest, and human with the people you wanted to help?
 
What if you stopped listening to gurus and started listening to yourself?
 

My guess is it would look something like this…

    I am a liitle confused by the video…I was of the belief that using client reviews was unethical….because of the position of the therapist in the therapeutic relationship…just my thoughts..however the video was very well done and professional…

    Thanks Jack for the reply. She thought about this, researched it from a license/professional standpoint as well as discussed the appropriateness. Then she asked permission and received written permission from each person. I believe she chose these two because they were already sharing their experiences with others and were more than happy to be a part of the video. I believe it’s a judgment call in terms of a therapist’s comfort level sharing and knowing about the power of a therapeutic relationship. But not unethical from a professional standpoint. But it would be great to get other’s thoughts!

    That’s interesting, David. I hope you are right. I believe that psychologists are actually not allowed to use testamonials from clients and that counselors are not allowed to solicit testamonials from clients. But, again, as the Jack noted, the video is beautifully done.

    Thanks Tamara. APA regs state that you cannot use testimonials from current clients. But it does bring about important issues/discussions worth following up on! Stay tuned.
