    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    “The job of the autonomic nervous system is to ensure we survive in moments of danger and thrive in times of safety. Survival requires threat detection and the activation of a survival response. Thriving demands the opposite—the inhibition of a survival response so that social engagement can happen. Without the capacity for activation, inhibition, and flexibility of response, we suffer.”

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    From an evolutionary perspective, all emotions are appropriate in certain circumstances when experienced at an optimal degree, providing the resources to effectively operate toward a desired goal. For example, certain levels of stress and anxiety push us to perform at a high level. Sadness can be cathartic, filling us with appreciation for what we have lost while signaling to others we need support to recover and heal. Similarly, mild to moderate anger can help us positively move forward.

    ~ Moshe Ratson

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Silence in therapy is not uncommon and is nothing to fear -- if you and your therapist can handle just being quiet, you may find yourself relaxing and eventually the words will come. Some people have such a strong need to perform and achieve that doing nothing for a few minutes may be the hardest (and most enriching) work they do in therapy."

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "I prefer the word 'care' to 'treatment,' because 'treatment' is too clinical. At the extreme end of the spectrum, people with serious mental disabilities need more than drugs and psychological therapies. They need social interventions: housing and social support, friends, peers, etc. That is genuine 'care.'"

    “Our therapeutic goal must be to teach the person how to bear their difficulties. Not to eliminate them for him, but to train the person to cope with special challenges with special strategies; to make the person aware not that they are ill, but that they are responsible for their lives.”

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    In the consulting room, it seems to me that there is a lot of “no-things” which can’t be contained and are perhaps searching and waiting for a container...What happens when the uncontained “no-things” meet an unreceptive container/human? Do they remain uncontained? Do they disappear?...Meeting a non-receptive other...leaves one alone with one’s uncontainable “no-things”. As the commercial says, “Can you hear me now?”

    In my community, I can find 10 therapists who primarily provide supportive psychotherapy for every 1 therapist trained in and willing to provide CBT. Most community therapists, even if they are excellent at delivering CBT, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), drift away from rigidly adhering to those models and end up performing a blended therapy. Some of these blended therapies would best be described as supportive psychotherapy, especially if no homework is given to the patient between sessions.

    Why Therapy Often Sucks | Portland Mindfulness Therapy

    Therapists, while they may have fancy credentials, often do not take the time to become expert at any particular technique. The result is they slosh around with you a little bit in a number of unfocused ways, and you go noplace, slowly.
