Establishing a trusting and respectful relationship between the family and the therapist proves time and again the basis for positive and long-lasting communicative change. The therapist must be genuinely dedicated to improving her client's communicative/life situation. She must engage the family as well as the client in decisions about treatment. She must respect differences, thoughts and emotions. The client must trust the therapist and do the work necessary to achieve change. When the relationship is established, there may be times of "fracture". This can be a healthy event in the therapeutic experience, continuing the necessary growth towards an efficacious outcome. The rewards of helping someone live a better life cannot be more gratifying. Some relationships last a lifetime.
