Jacob tailors his approach to each individual client according to the feedback he receives from them, and often has conversations about what is and is not working for his client. He thinks of his client, himself, and the therapeutic relationship in the context of society's patterns that may be encouraging or discouraging their movement towards greater equality and liberation.
