Default Re: When to end therapy

Thanks for replying.

It does seem like we are at the limit. We had a 120 minute session recently and about 75 minutes of that session was spent in silence (though not in one long stretch). And the client fell silent for 5 of the last 10 minutes of session. And then 5 minutes before the end, the client said "I might as well go" and left.

Though when the client says something like "Not everything can be saved" and that client then indirectly compares self to garbage (asking "You take out garbage once a week, don't you? See...not everything can be saved.")...when the client says something like this...it is hard to say goodbye when the therapists task it to help them see they are not garbage.

Thanks again for the reply.
