What's Constitutes a Win?

Posted by TherapyGirl on July 1, 2007, at 19:38:52

Jammer asked me a question in the Camp Comfort thread that I think is interesting, so I'm starting a separate thread. Jammer wanted to know if I would have felt like I "won" an argument with my T if she had thanked me for sharing my feelings with her, but not changed anything. (I complained to my T one year when she was planning to miss 3 weeks during December and she ended up coming in on a Monday during one of the weeks to meet with me.)

It's a good question and basically where I am right now. She thanks me for sharing my feelings and acts like she wants me to continue to do so, she occasionally agrees with a point I've made (although not on the major points), she said one time to give her a chance to show me how she now gets what I've been trying to tell her, but the bottom line is that NOTHING HAS CHANGED. I still don't feel connected, she still doesn't seem to get it and now we are arguing about whose issue it is.

So what do you guys think constitutes a win in a disagreement with your T? Do they have to give in or just acknowledge your feelings?
