A certain A.T. Beck once wrote:

It is useful to conceive of the patient-therapist relationship as a joint effort. It is not the therapist's function to try to reform the patient: rather, his role is working with the patient against "it," the patient's problem. Placing the emphasis on solving problems, rather than his presumed defects or bad habits, helps the patient to examine his difficulties with more detachment and makes him less prone to experience shame, a sense of inferiority, and defensiveness.
Which of these people is your patient? And what is your patient's problem?
