Oh crap; that is not what I meant to do. Sorry. I had a message I thought I sent and cannot remember it now except the part where I disagree that a person in therapy over 8 months means the therapist is doing the patient a disservice. Of course I am in more psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy which often lasts for years, and in my experience tends to address change at a more comprehensive level than CBT which addresses the thinking with the belief that feelings and behavior will follow. Problem I have with CBT, and I was intially trained as a strict behaviorist (UGH), is that the therapeutic relationship is not considered very important if at all by many CBT folks. With the more psychoananlytically informed approaches, the therapeutic relationship is a "curative" factor.

So I would not do well with CBT partly because of my later training but also because of my belief that knowning myself inside and out and my relationship to others is going to make a world of difference for me in terms of my life and my relationships. For others, CBT is great, and they swear by it. So, it really is important to find the right match in terms of a therapist and the type of therapy. Sigh. There was more. Sorry don't remember.
