In a world dominated by technology and driven by fiscal policy emphasis, the therapeutic relationship as a healing modality is still a central theme to mental health nurses MHN in their everyday work. This research, as part of a PhD program, used a constructivist grounded theory approach to explore the process of therapeutic relationships and professional boundaries. The current paper outlines how therapeutic friendliness provides a connection for the therapeutic relationship to develop but in doing so requires a balancing of the therapeutic relationship and constant maintenance of the professional boundary. The authors also discuss how community mental health nurses CMHN invest in the therapeutic relationship in order to develop a therapeutic alliance and how the alliance between the CMHN and the client facilitates the use of therapeutic leverage applied by the CMHN as part of the therapeutic process. Abstract In a world dominated by technology and driven by fiscal policy emphasis, the therapeutic relationship as a healing modality is still a central theme to mental health nurses MHN in their everyday work.
