Assessing Therapist-client Fit

Welcome to Edition 324 of Institute Inbrief. This edition's featured article acknowledges the common understanding (backed up consistently by research) that a good therapeutic alliance is a prime predictor of success in therapy, and it also notes the converse: that not all therapists can work with all clients. It poses the question of which factors we should consider in making this assessment of therapist-client fit.

The Micro-skills of Non-verbal Language

View

Welcome to Edition 157 of Institute Inbrief. Social scientists claim that at least 80 per cent of our communication takes place on the non-verbal level (Young, 2005), with only 7 percent of emotion being conveyed by verbal means. As such, researchers have come to appreciate non-verbal behaviours as important channels of communication.
