    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    From a blog post by a therapist (Barry Brody, PhD):

    One day, I recall sitting in a lecture and the professor says “Every session has to be minted new, fresh. If you are thinking about what Freud or Adler or Jung would have done, the session is over. You are done. The session is over.” This is what I had been searching for.
    In the consulting room….

    When the door closes….

    It is just me and the patient.

    And the experience.

    There is no way to prepare. You either have and tolerate the experience or find someway to avoid it.

    A good way to avoid the experience is to rely on what I know–theories, techniques, what has been effective with other patients. This way I won’t have to discover anything new.

    Of course, the patient also brings their well-developed experience-avoiding skills.

    If we are lucky, then perhaps one day, one session either myself or the patient or both of us will be able to stop avoiding and tolerate the experience.

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    In my book this guy's approach is awesome and funny

    I'm also guessing he probably gets constanltly bashed by old school therapists for daring to think outside the box created by Freud and friends.

    And in some ways, old school is new again since he is a psychodynamic therapist: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/t...-city-fl/37027

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    Different therapeutic approaches may be associated with particular theories about what needs to change in a person for a successful therapeutic outcome. In general, processes of emotional arousal and memory have long been held to play an important role. One theory combining these aspects proposes that permanent change occurs to the extent that the neuropsychological mechanism of memory reconsolidation is triggered and is able to incorporate new emotional experiences.

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "A great deal of depression and anxiety results from the idea that we aren’t good enough, so we beat up on ourselves relentlessly, thinking perhaps that if we punish ourselves enough, we will grow and eventually attain some goal of perfection or superiority. But this mind-set is the problem; it is not the cure. Recovery more often results from what I call the Acceptance Paradox–which means the death of the patient’s ego. That means accepting that you are, and always will be, quite flawed, and accepting this with a sense of inner peace, or even humor."

    Re: Quotes on Therapy

    "Therapy was a kind of mixed atmospheric chamber, where a somewhat healthier atmosphere could be provided in nearly tolerable doses, so that Alice could adapt to it and use it by degrees. She could gradually get used to exercising psychic lungs in alternative atmospheric conditions, so that the contrast between what she was used to, what she wanted, and what she got would not do her in. As years passed, she built more of the kind of life that she could say yes to."
