In reply to Containing emotion, posted by gardenergirl on February 4, 2005, at 8:15:31
Besides all the wonderful ideas posted, my only other thought, is sometimes, maybe we shouldn't consider containing these emotions, instead, allowing them an alternative outlet ... until the next therapy session. I do like to talk out a session sometimes to myself (silently of course, while taking a walk) or talking with a kind friend. And my favorite, immediately afterwards, listening to loud music in my car. And if I'm headed for home vs. work, dancing (while no one can see me).
