The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how mutuality and shared power in relationship can avoid coercion and force in mental health treatment.
This is not a research design. It is rather an opinion piece with extensive examples of the approach.
The authors have found that using these processes can enable connection; the key to relationship building.
This paper is totally original and stands to offer the field, a new perspective.
