Abstract

The use of therapist self-disclosure as a treatment intervention has evoked substantial controversy since interest in the phenomenon first emerged. In recent years, as the debate surrounding its therapeutic value has intensified, there has been a shift in attitude away from the traditional psychoanalytic resistance regarding the implementation of this technique (Farber et al., 2004). Research designs have developed to accommodate problems concerning the limited generalisability of findings associated with earlier studies, facilitating the emergence of a more substantial, methodologically sound research base. The current review acknowledges this development and was conducted as a means of summarising extant attitudes towards the implications of therapist self-disclosure for client outcomes and the therapy process. Factors potentially mediating the relationship between therapist selfdisclosure and client outcomes are sought, and implications for the Clinical Psychology profession considered.
