This article takes a fresh approach using old worn out terms, in my opinion. New wine in old bottles. When one uses “injury” to describe psychological trauma, this perpetuates the medical ideas. I’ve seen a lot of psychotherapists in my time, and in my experience, only one was good. That’s all I needed. Most were useless and a few harmful. None of them discussed with me in the beginning, their potential, based on their training and success or failures, to be helpful to me. None evaluated our progress. I have to agree with Steve McCrea. The omission of psych drugs as the third leading cause of death was a large error in this article. In my opinion, unless one is in a severe psych emergency, there is no need to seek professional help, like a psychotherapist. Just talking to someone who is a good listener–empathetic and non-judging, can be just as helpful. And what about peer support? Self-help, when applicable, is far more empowering than outside interventions. In choosing a professional therapist, besides one who does not judge, I would look for one who would teach me life skills.
