in fact...
thats what interests me the most.
the power of theory to offer a conceptualisation of peoples behaviour.
the power of theory to offer a conceptualisation that it is just about impossible to accept without despair...
the power of theory to offer a conceptualisation that is healing to accept. that offers hope. and empathy. and understanding.

and it seems to me that linehan is revolutionary there.

and what is left to be done...

is to rewrite all 'mental illness' stuff... in a similar vein.

i don't care how much theorietical dispute remains...

a fair bit of sh*t has been inherited
from clinicians
who reveal more about themselves
and their own insecurities
than they reveal about people with mental illness.

and what is so very sad about it...
is that we expect more from clinicians.

i really don't think it should be too much to ask them to be empathetic and to attempt to understand...
but unfortunately...
most times it is.

and most blunder on oblivious...
