Re: Taking Responsibility

I think his point was that the client needs to take responsibility for having avoided the issue for so long. That the pathology is from the avoidance, not the trauma. Rephrased: If you face a trauma immediately, there is no resulting pathology. If you didn't, what you need to work on is why you didn't, not the trauma itself.

I can see how this is partially true. But it feels like blaming the victim for being upset about the trauma. But I think I'm too close to it to make sense of it. I should let it go, I guess.
