Sorry daisy, could you please clarify something for me. When you wrote:

> There is one in particular that talks about clients/patients "taking responsibility for avoiding the issue(s) for so long... which complicates the working through process substantially."

did the article mean that the working through process is complicated because the client *is* taking on the responsibility, or is it complicated because the client *is not* accepting that responsbility?

I have read many times that you need to accept your avoidance/denial as a coping mechanism that you used in the past. That it may have served you quite well at the time, but now you need to recognise it as a currently maladaptive coping mechanism to be able to stop coping with stressors that way.
