    I know nothing about this individual's issues/situation, but if the psychologist actually told him/her (verbatim) "you deserve to be assaulted," that's a professional faux pas, potentially endangering the life of the patient, for all we know. But, like I said.. I dunno if that was just the OP's impression of what transpired, or what was actually said. If it were actually said, then I think some kind of report should be made on that particular doctor.

    If not, well.. @skylights makes a good point. It's hit or miss. Some doctors are useful, some are not, sometimes patients/doctors don't click for various reasons. Up to the patient in the end. You make valid points, as well, though. In the end it's up to the patient to be proactive about their treatment, no matter what. I don't think any of us are familiar enough with this person to really offer much more than that, in terms of conclusive information/advice.
    I think that's the important point, I have the impression reading what has been posted already that they are at an impasse with this particular therapist but I also dont know that it is likely, based on what has been posted already, that they are likely to find another therapist any different.

    It could be that my view is influenced by feelings of professional fraternity but I wouldnt expect any therapist to conduct themselves in that manner, saying such a thing as has been reported, but given the other things which have been said it does appear like there is hostility there and that it stems from feelings of irreconcilable differences, some of which actually correspond to the therapists challenging rather than validating of behaviour and beliefs. Some of what is involved there could be at least contributing factors as to why this person has come into therapy in the first place.

    I agree that there's needs in therapy to establish a therapeautic relationship but that cant be established on the basis of lies or unconditional validation of clients. I'm pretty sure that even Carl Roger's unconditional positive regard wouldnt involve unqualified validation.

    Validating beliefs and behaviours which are, or have become, maladaptive is really antithetical to a good outcome, it'd be self-defeating to be validating during the first couple of meetings and then take a change of tact.

    I mean, that's all pretty commonsensical so far as it goes, its not even based upon much in the way of psychological insights or theory, just how people build up relationships in which trust and reliability or consistency is requisite.

    I can see why you are in therapy.

    There is no way that you could know or conclude what you have just posted from reading anything I have posted.

    Given that this is the case I believe it would be ill advised for me to engage in any discussion with you as you will not read what I actually write but instead project what you believe may be said instead.

    I'll be honest, your posts show a lack of maturity, you are either young in years or attempting to troll the forum. I actually suspect you could be a dupe or clone account for another member because a real random thread of this kind by a super unknown visitor to the site seems unlikely.

    A good therapist is worth his/her weight in gold, IMO. Some are good and some aren't. Some are good for some people and not for others and good for dealing with some issues and not others. I got a lot of help from one that specialized in cognitive therapy. Another one I went to, I would have sworn she got her license from a cereal box.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
