I think we go through different phases in therapy, and those phases serve the therapeutic process. We need at certain points to regress, but then we also need to come back to ourselves, to resume, or to assume, our mature selves. We mustn't get stuck in regressed places.

I guess we can be regressed without therapy, we can act in real life, like kids, younger than we are, act out all sorts of behaviors that are too young for our age.

There is a wonderful, wonderful book by Judith Viorst called "Necessary Losses". It is so clear about this subject. It helped me in ways that my T couldn't.
