This series of articles is more about the art of clinical practice than the science of our work. While we are more accustomed to reading about the science of practice, it is the art of doing clinical work that makes our knowledge of science usable. A significant part of the art of practice is using counseling techniques and one of the most basic ways in which they may be used is to establish a positive relationship by joining with clients. Desired changes in speech-language competence are more likely to occur when we energize our clients rather than make them “too tired” to work with us. Similarly, our clients are better partners in creating change when they feel competent rather than demoralized, alert rather than bored, contented rather than angry, and enthusiastic rather than discouraged. An increasingly “tighter fit” in the relationship between client and clinician makes it more likely that treatment plans can be implemented and goals for change met.
