Providing clinical interventions to individuals experiencing mental illness requires the therapeutic
use of self. The therapeutic use of self involves using aspects of yourself, such as your personality,
experience, knowledge of mental illness and life skills, as a way of developing and sustaining the
therapeutic relationship with clients. Clients need to feel trust and safe in order to disclose sensitive
information about themselves to another person. Often the client may not have spoken about this
sensitive material to another before, therefore the early beginnings of the therapeutic alliance/relationship is critical.
Care delivery in mental health service involves many demands and challenges for clinicians, including balancing the specific caring role with an array of other work responsibilities.
