Empathic: An Unappreciated Way of Being


    A little later a social worker who had a background of Rankian training, helped me to learn that the most effective approach was to listen for the feelings, the emotions whose patterns could be discerned through the client's words. I believe she was the one who suggested that the best response was to "reflect" these feelings back to the client "reflect" becoming in time a word which made me cringe. But at that time it improved my work as therapist, and I was grateful.
