This isn't therapy...it’s a conversation about spotting red flags in therapy. In today's world, there has been increased attention put on the potential warning signs, or red flags, in our lives and relationships. Since the therapy room often reflects the norms of a culture, it is no surprise that therapy and therapists are also getting the red flag treatment. On one hand, this can be empowering for clients to own their experience and recognize how red flags show up in the therapeutic space. On the other hand, it can also result in miscommunication of a therapist's intentions or a misidentification of a client's needs. Through the first hand accounts of two lovely listeners, Jake and Simon unpack the nuance of using the red flag system! Hello, hi!
