    A therapist doesn't heal, he lets healing be.

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person's ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me."

    "We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.”

    “Once an experience is fully in awareness, fully accepted, then it can be coped with effectively, like any other clear reality.”

    ― Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy


    A finely tuned understanding by another individual gives the recipient a sense of personhood, of identity. In the ordinary interactions of life congruence is probably the most important element. Congruence, or genuineness, involves letting the other person know "who you are" emotionally. It may involve confrontation and the straightforward expression of personally owned feelings - both negative and positive.

    ― Carl R. Rogers, A Way of Being

    ---------- Post Merged at 11:00 AM ---------- Previous Post was at 09:22 AM ----------

    "We teach people that they upset themselves. We can't change the past, so we change how people are thinking, feeling and behaving today."

    "There are three musts that hold us back: I must do well. You must treat me well. And the world must be easy."

    ~ Albert Ellis

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    I found a lot of console and a lot of answers in reading Albert Ellis. I read only one of his books. He is a pioneer and a lot of his ideas were adopted by later CBT called authors. Very talented man, impressive ideas could be found in his books. To me, he is bigger than David Burns.

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    BTW:

    Rogers and Ellis, however, do share several important beliefs and values:

    1. Great optimism that people can change, even when deeply disturbed.

    2. A perception that individuals are often unnecessarily self-critical, and that negative attitudes can become positive.

    3. A willingness to put forth great effort to help people; both through individual therapy and through professional therapy and nontechnical
    writing, and

    4. A willingness to demonstrate their methods publicly.

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    Nothing wrong with Carl Rogers, but Albert Ellis is the author who, if read properly, allows to find answers and solutions to difficult problems, and to even understand why people engage in the relationships they do. I like his approach and hope to have more time to read his books. The book I read was: "The secret of overcoming verbal abuse: Getting off the emotional roller coaster and regaining control of your life" by Albert Ellis and Marcia Powers.

    That's why I like DBT. It combines both approaches -- Ellis-like CBT with Rogers-like validation -- along with mindfulness.
