Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Respect has special meaning in psychodynamic psychotherapy. It means looking back at someone or something, and is ultimately derived from the theatre.
Within psychotherapy, the experience of respect is that one is seen as who one is, possibly for the first time with full consciousness of oneself.
One of the therapists on this site coined the phrase 'Respect is the sensation of noticing oneself through the other person being seen for who one is and accepted for it.'
