reflective communication

reflective communication

A general term for a format of client-oriented psychotherapy in which the client is afforded the opportunity to examine his or her behaviours and interactions with others while the therapist acts as a verbal “mirror”, often by restating what the person has just said. In reflective communication, therapist “interjection” is minimal or nonexistent, as it encourages a person to take responsibility for his or her actions, shows the client that he or she can be entrusted with his or her own destiny, helps the client view his or her circumstances in a different light, and promotes insight into negative behaviour patterns.
