Being Real: The Power of Authentic Therapeutic Relationships in Women’s Services


Tuesday, February 21, 2017 | 2:00 pm — 3:30 pm EST


As the field shifts toward implementing evidence-based practices, it is important to remember that no intervention is effective without having the foundational pieces of good clinical care in place. How do you build authentic rapport that generates the trust women need to facilitate healing? This webinar kicks off the Relationships Matter! series with a look at the therapeutic relationships that help women engage in services and recovery. 

Topics will include:

  • Why relationships matter
  • Trust and rapport in service delivery
  • Defining and creating therapeutic alliance
  • Peers and peer relationships
  • Cultural understanding and responsiveness
  • Managing relationships within group settings
  • Building connections
