Therapist Vacations

Posted by fallsfall on July 24, 2003, at 16:10:02

I think that I have expressed my opinion before that therapists shouldn't have lives and shouldn't take vacations. My therapist said he was going anyway - and he's taking 2 weeks! He's going sailing (like in the ocean, I think).

Before the last couple of days I wasn't feeling too bad about his vacation. But it has been hard recently and I might feel better having something set up. I'm sure that my old group therapist would see me (even though I didn't pick her to be my new permanent therapist).

He said that sometimes he will contact patients while he is on vacation, and that we might want to do that this year. What do you guys think of this? My initial feeling is that there is no way that I am going to disrupt his vacation. He really does deserve to get away and spend time with his family. But he would prefer this to me seeing someone else while he is gone. I think that he is hoping that things will be OK, and that if I have an appointment with someone that I will keep it even if I don't need it (she does have a sand table...).

This is SO different from how my old therapist was. What is "normal"?
