I thought this was interesting. But, the fact remains that people aren't one size fits all and some go to therapy for so many different reasons.

I know a real person that's in his late 50's. He has been in "therapy" since he was in preschool. He was put in for bed wetting as a child and anxiety. Has he gotten better? Well, he doesn't wet his bed, but he still has anxiety and a lot of somatic complaints that docs can't find a thing. In fact, this guy developed obsessive compulsive disorder as an adult. He is quite the loner type. Now, I can see what the people skeptics would say in his case.

But, how much is the blame on the him or his numberous therapists? Maybe he is the type that just like going to therapy, because its a way of life for him? I don't know, but he can work. He has no intimate relationships in his life, because he says he feels like a freak. Hmmmmmm. I ask him, "What the devil are you telling that t?" But, it's his life and his money. If he wants to be "in therapy" for the rest of his life, that's his beez wax.

Personally, I am more goal oriented. I try to structure my therapy to meet goals and see improvements internally and externally. But, that's my beez wax. It's not really a debate, but a freedom of choice. The person that pays the bill decides in my opinion.;)
