Default Re: Depression Discussion

Makes sense to me. I think we're on the same page.

I just want to say that it's also not always about "dialogue;" sometimes it's just very useful to finely slice the encounter with a phenomenological method. Becoming a patient but careful observer (and resisting the temptation to theorize, make sense, move toward a goal, etc) and staying with the process in the moment can become both a therapist's life preserver and an incredibly sharp therapeutic strategy. It rests upon faith in the paradoxical theory of change.
