Therapeutic Misalliance

A warm, loving connection between therapist and patient is the cornerstone for our doing life-changing work together. Sadly, such a bond can go missing, leaving both parties confused, dispirited and alone.

I recently spoke with my All Things CBT colleague Heather Clague MD about ways in which therapeutic misalliance crops up in our work – and what we can do when it does. This is also be the topic of a six-week online course Heather and I will co-teach next month at the Feeling Good Institute.
