Rapport, Empathy, and Reflection

ByFaye E. Johnston, Vincent B. Van Hasselt, Michel Hersen

The very essence of this text, from the inception, is to present to students of psychology a foundation from which they can glean the "nuts and bolts" of psychotherapeutic practice. For this chapter, in particular, it is necessary to transcend any particular theoretical perspective because when one refers the clinician's inherent gifts of empathy, rapport, and reflection to his or her clients, theoretical perspective is not applicable.
