Shared control

Wikis > Shared control

Shared control refers to the co-operative approach in the client-practitioner relationship. The practitioner considers the client as the expert on his or her life and as the practitioner’s teacher. There is a sharing of time and space in the session, with the practitioner listening more than talking in the initial stages.
