Turns out it’s more than just a common quality of highly effective therapists, humility is actually a prerequisite!
Studies confirm “professional self-doubt” is not only a strong predictor of both alliance and outcome but actually a prerequisite for acquiring therapeutic expertise. Speaking specifically to the field of psychotherapy in, Humility: The paradoxical foundation for psychotherapy expertise, the authors, Hook, Watkins, Davis, and Owen , define humility as “valuing input from the other (or client) … and [a] willingness to engage in self-scrutiny.”
Does this sound like you?
We all profess humility and I know as an ethics bound professional that you already ask for feedback and have likely already encountered some negative feedback from a client. When you have received negative feedback about treatment progress or experienced a rupture in the therapeutic alliance, ask your self how ofter you were able to:
1: Fix the problem?
2: Learn from the feedback and apply it in future encounters?
Did you confidently answer yes, all the time to both questions, because this is the path your colleagues are taking to go from average to excellent. Only you know how far down this journey you have gone, or are willing to go, but what I do know is that both MyOutcomes® and The International Center for Clinical Excellence (ICCE) are dedicated to providing you with the tools and training you need to see noticeable improvements in treatment results.
