Okay... So I've read the stuff on the first chapter... Though I'll have to think about 'approximation' a bit...

Have been thinking about Bruer...
Was it really a phantom pregnancy?????
She was institutionalised around then...
Just a thought.

I guess the situation would have been pretty terrifying for him as well... I mean, he didn't have anyone to normalise his counter-transference feelings either.

I know that therapists are supposed to be able to put their needs / desires aside in order to do therapy properly... I know that they know that. But I'm sure that they get some situations (when people want to go deeper) and / or some clients where they are unsure whether they CAN do that. Even though they know they should - they are human after all...


Was the 'approximation' stuff about an approximation of love, an approximation of a relationship with friends or a lover or parents?
(Sorry if I'm missing the point there)

The template idea sounds to me a lot like schemata (schemas).

I like it how she doesn't have transference based solely on the past - it is also an artifact of the present interrelation.

And the nature of therapy...
The nature of therapy...

I like her dilemmas
The power imbalance
The dilemmas of paying for caring etc etc
They do make it hard.

I have been thinking about what she was saying about therapy with respect to Babble as well...

Not just with respect to us being like the coffee group but...


This place IS my therapy.
So I guess this kind of makes you guys my therapists in a sense...
Not that you have a professional obligation to me or anything like that...
But it is an approximation of a therapy relationship in the sense that I bring stuff here that most people would take to their therapist.

So how much is Babble (when viewed as an approximation of therapy) subject to the same dilemmas, and how much is it not????????


There isn't just ONE person like therapy - because here there are many Babblers.
I don't pay anything for caring
But I do think the caring I receive (or at least the extent of it etc) is dependent on the caring I give
(But that is more an approximation to real world relationships than MONEY which is an issue in therapy)

And transference...

Whats up with that here???

I have found that I do get particularly attached to particular posters.
And I have had Babblemails which indicate I'm not the only one.
