10 Steps to being an authentic Therapist
Posted on Tuesday May 26 2015 by RIG Healthcare
1. Listen actively to the person.
2. Hear what the person is saying verbally and non-verbally.
3. Translate this narrative into a measurable baseline; is this where you currently are?
4. Work with the person to identify their goals.
5. Actively listen, explore the barriers that they could experience to get to their goal.
6. Develop a partnership and identify how to overcome any barriers.
7. Use the language, symbols and metaphors that your client is using.
8. Pinpoint your starting point and crucially, the first non-failing achievable step.
9. Provide regular feedback on their achievements/developments and support them in their journey with the all tools you have.
10. When the time is right and they are on the road to independence, let go. Measure the cost benefit analysis of your intervention and feedback to the organisation.
