As therapists, we want our clients to be able to say no, but should that include us?


Do we really work to make our clients comfortable telling us ‘no’. It doesn’t show up much in discussions about therapy , though it is out there if you look.  Doctors Scott Miller and Barry Duncan come to mind.

But I didn’t really see this as a serious issue until I read a book by Jim Camp called ‘No”.

Now I think everything that matters in a therapy session hinges on it. Simply put: human dignity is impossible without it.
