Talk Time Featuring Dr. Jeremy Safran – Talking About Therapeutic Alliance and Repair


Dr. Jeremy Safran will be joined me to share what he knows (which is considerable) on Alliance in Therapy and more particularly How You Can Recognize and Repair Alliance Ruptures.

When we're helping clients make change alliance is essential, and it's easy to run into difficulties that effect our alliance, sometimes without our being aware of it. Alliance rupture and repair is one of Dr. Safran's specialities.
