Relational Cultural Theory*
Relational cultural theory (RCT) is grounded in feminist theory and supports the notion that chronic disconnection of humans causes suffering. RCT counselors believe clients must be understood within their contextual and socio-cultural impacts on the well being of clients. Cultivating growth fostering relationships is critical to meeting the needs of our clients. Healing of clients presenting problems takes place within the context of mutual empathetic and growth fostering relationships.
