It's been a while but I'm here! Band 5 rotational OT currently working in acute mental health. #OTalk
Solei OT 🌻 @soleinj_
@BethanyChitty @OTalk_ What are your thoughts on this definition: “revealing information about yourself outside of the therapeutic encounter such as personal insights, coping strategies, emotional struggles, own health issues, life circumstances, values or beliefs, past experiences?” #OTalk
deb_OT @dmay_ot
@soleinj_ @OTalk_ I'd say it's about sharing (selective) elements of your life with your clients, as an example of a behaviour or as a bare minimum to demonstrate that you're human too! #OTalk
Jenny Wright @jwrightot
@caralawrence @soleinj_ @OTalk_ In what way do you see self disclosure as being different in different roles? Really interested by this idea! #OTalk

@soleinj_ @BethanyChitty @OTalk_ I would agree this definition. You summed it up perfectly. #otalk
Jenny Wright @jwrightot
@soleinj_ @BethanyChitty @OTalk_ I wonder why it specifies outside of the therapeutic encounter? 🤔 can you not self-disclose within your therapeutic encounter with a patient? #OTalk #morequestionsthananswersfromme
deb_OT @dmay_ot
@soleinj_ @BethanyChitty @OTalk_ Are there risks that sharing your values may be seen as judgmental if this differ significantly from your client's? #otalk
Bethany Chitty @BethanyChitty
@soleinj_ @OTalk_ I think that covers a great amount of it, but I also think that this might not necessarily by 'outside' of the therapeutic encounter - it can be part of it #OTalk
Solei OT 🌻 @soleinj_

Lynsey Stocks @HoneysuckleOt
@soleinj_ @OTalk_ Self disclosure or therapeutic use of self is using your personality and appropriate sharing of values and information to help with building the therapeutic relationship. It can be a good wY of role modelling, skills building and building empathy #OTalk

Emma Barclay @emlouisebaker
@soleinj_ @KatrinaBannigan @jwrightot @Emmi88OT @BethanyChitty @OTalk_ @OTPlymouthUni @PIELRes Yep I agree the risk varies by client group and also by what you disclose. Eg home address versus favourite food! #OTalk
Jenny Wright @jwrightot

@BethanyChitty @soleinj_ @kerri_schOT @HelenaAmos_OT @OTalk_ I totally agreed. Once worked with a lady who didn't speak to any staff or other patients for 2 weeks. Appropriate self disclosure was my only intervention in that period to build rapport, and eventually she said 'Hello'! #OTalk

@soleinj_ @kerri_schOT @HelenaAmos_OT @OTalk_ I disclose a mild fear of pigeons when trying to describe the concepts of CBT which helps ground the ideas in a real example, lightens the mood a lot and helps people see me as a real person too. #OTalk
Alexis @8alexisjoelle
Guidance is important to improve throughout practice. Hard set rules should be no personal identification info like where live, phone number, FB username. Question we can ask is “will me bringing up this personal info allow my clients to become more independent?” #otalk
Emmi D @Emmi88OT
@caralawrence @alisonfwarren Yes, I agree. We need to use our clinical judgment #OTalk
Rachel Reece OT @RRenable
I’ve missed #otalk woops! I’ve noticed a rise in students disclosing their medical conditions etc to pts and although there are benefits to being open, it does blur the boundary because as a student or AHP it’s integral to be client-centred with emphasis on the pts experience

Rachael @RachaelD_OT
@soleinj_ @otalk I think that the meaning of self-disclosure is different for many. Until self-disclosure is defined concisely, it would be difficult to provide guidance. Many don’t realise that they’re self-disclosing - you can’t follow guidance if you don’t realise it’s relevant #OTalk
Lowri Hywel @lorsh78
@OTPlymouthUni @soleinj_ @otalk This. Absolutely! Ultimately we need to maintain boundaries within our therapeutic relationships. The skill is in judging when & what is appropriate to share with patients & when/what is not. Those who over share may be unaware; offering guidance & support could help.#otalk
Rebecca Crouch, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@soleinj_ @otalk Guidance should already be provided at uni or work, like universal info not to share e.g. telephone no., address. However, conversation starters like football teams, music and food preferences should be fine. I guess it depends how you feel about sharing and where you work #OTalk

@soleinj_ @otalk I have witnessed oversharing - becomes tricky when tensions are high - personal/childrens names used in threats & boundaries not there to cushion the blow. I feel disclosing comes later, when you recognise what level of disclosure is needed to build trust (or none at all) #OTalk
Lindsay Rook @LindsayOTPICU
