About this research

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and the International Centre for Mental Health Social Research (Department of Social Policy and Social Work, University of York) are currently undertaking research into the use of self-disclosure by professionals in mental health settings:  what do practitioners think about self-disclosure, and what do service users think?

It is anticipated that the research will lead to the development of guidance and training on self-disclosure that may help practitioners to think about disclosure in more depth, so they can decide how they do, or do not, use it in their work.
