working phase

working phase

(in psychology) the second stage of the therapist-client relationship. During this stage clients explore their experiences. Therapists assist clients in this process by helping them to describe and clarify their experiences, to plan courses of action and try out the plans, and to begin to evaluate the effectiveness of their new behavior. Should new behavior prove ineffective, therapists can assist clients in revising their courses of action.
