Abstract

This chapter provides a psychological conceptualisation of therapeutic communication. The chapter is in four parts. First. I describe the essential elements of therapeutic communication. Second, I discuss the types of communication strategy that one needs to build onto those basic elements in order to create therapy. Third, I discuss the central importance of motivation in therapy and why it is critical to understand the motivational structure of the individual one is trying to influence. In the final section I pose a number of questions about the relevance of therapeutic communication to court settings other than problem-solving courts.
