The statement that perhaps psychotherapy could not exist without abuse is somewhat discomforting. Could you define "abuse," or would one need to read one of the books mentioned? Is abuse too multifaceted to define in this forum? For example, is it abusive for a therapist to probe in areas that the client is clearly reluctant to discuss? Is it abusive for the therapist to seek to satisy his/her own curiosity?
