Madanes will discuss the importance of bringing transparency to therapy. Being transparent means to share all relevant information with our clients in a way that is timely and valid. It means sharing the reasoning and intent underlying our statements, questions and actions. When you are transparent you create better results because clients understand your thinking. Therapy no longer needs to be based on mysterious, privileged knowledge – this is, after all, the age of Google, when anyone can get any question answered in a matter of seconds. Therapists need to step up and share as much of their knowledge and thinking as possible. Examples and case stories will illustrate how therapists can become transparent.
