Neurodivergent-Affirming Clinical Practices and Psychological Safety.

One of the defining competencies of psychotherapy practice is referred to as ‘safe and effective use of self’ (SEUS). This simply refers to how therapists use their own experiences and understanding of themselves to help their clients. It’s about being aware of how our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviours affect the therapy relationship, and using that self-awareness for the benefit of the therapeutic work.
