I agree completely:
That Don's card-intervention was inspired.
That Don is exquisitely sensitive to the affective atmosphere
That single channel communication blots out the music here for all of us
Doesn't this last observation apply to Henry's work as well? I assume it is possible to pursue "Socratic questioning" as a collaborative project with the patient in an atmosphere that doesn't elicit shame. I didn't hear Henry advocate being a "blank screen."
I also wonder if you have an opinion about whether a personality change had occurred in Harold as a consequence of the therapy. I thought that was one of the things Henry was asking. From an affect-script point of view it may be that "personality" is not a useful construct. Is that so?
