A therapeutic relationship is an effective way to promote positive change in people. It involves building trust in order to encourage openness and honesty. This leads to better understanding. Those people who are undergoing any type of therapy will want this type of interaction with their therapist. This is because such a relationship will produce the right conditions for them to be able to get the most from these sessions. The therapist will also be keen to promote this type of interaction because they know that it will produce the best results. It could be said that without such a relationship the therapy will be unlikely to provide much benefit.
