In reply to Unethical Ts and qualifications, posted by toojane on October 30, 2006, at 12:38:07

I just wanted to say that I don't think AT ALL that one can characterize whether someone will be a good therapist or not based on their degree. It depends so so much on individual qualities and the fit between therapist and client. My therapist is an LCSW, and I thoroughly believe he would never act like wishingstar's therapist. He is supremely ethical and sensitive to how I might be feeling about the realtionship. In fact, most schools of social work emphasize the relationship more than other schools of therapy because they are focused more on interpersonal relationships in general.

I don't mean this post to sound harsh or anything. I guess I just got really defensive because I felt that you were using social workers as an example of less than ideal therapists. I know that may not be what you intended at all, though, so I'm trying to contain my defensiveness as much as possible. Just please realize that it's impossible to figure out therapist-client fit based on a degree, or ethicalness or anything.
