Feel good, feel bad

There are posts about things that make you feel bad, and posts about things that make you feel good. It won't take much imagination to decide which ones these two belong to:

Falling asleep in shul is not just another Jewish thing

I’ll bet you’re thinking, oh no.

Another Jewish thing, like the one she did on Rosh HaShana or when she was even MORE Jewish and wrote about being in the synagogue on Yom Kippur. And then there’s that weird mantra post she wrote about finding lost objects. Nam myo ho re. . . (never mind).

Foiled again.

No, this one's really about listening. Could have been titled, What the Rabbi Didn't Say.

Divine.

Antidepressants and kids

I posted this on on November 1, 2006 when a story came out in the news, once again dissing medication for teenagers, declaring the jury's still out.

Frankly, when this happens professionals in my field want to scream. So I did.

Check this link about suicide, antidepressants, and teenagers.

About the Co-Investigator

Sometimes a therapist will consult with me, looking for the easy answer to what's going on with a patient and where to go with it next.

I want to say, What's the rush, it took a long time for whatever this is to evolve, what's the hurry to fix it boom, boom, boom. Get to know your client, enjoy the relationship.

But what I end up saying is that it's the patient who will tell the therapist where to go next and what strategies are going to work.

So the rest of the story is here. I wrote it on 10-31-06.

It's a interactional kind of therapy.

Child Abuse, Lemme Share about the Poster

One of my patients was looking up at a poster in my office and remarked on it, the same remark I've heard probably a hundred times, no exaggeration. "So true."

It's the Words Hit as Hard as a Fist poster. I blogged on how I got it. Read the comments, too.
