Considering this, do psychologists talk about their patients?
Basically, the only time most therapists talk about their clients is in supervision or when they are deeply distressed about how a client's life is unfolding. And, then it is about the therapist's feelings of helplessness and what to do next, not the details of the client's issues.
Also Know, what are process questions in therapy? The process question is a question aimed at calming anxiety and gaining access to information on how the family perceives the problem and how the mechanisms driving and maintaining the problem operate.
Secondly, is it OK to ask your therapist personal questions?
Another therapist perspective: it's ok to ask semi-personal questions of a therapist, realizing that as a matter of judgment, the therapist may not be able to answer. Regardless of clinical orientation, therapists' codes of professional conduct require us to maintain good boundaries, for the sake of the client.
What questions will a psychologist ask my child?
When deciding on a treatment with your child's therapist: What type of therapy do you think will be of the most help to my child in his/her particular situation? Why? What are the alternative treatments, if any? If you are not recommending any evidence-based treatment, why not?
