I don't do those doorknob confessions...simply because I am usually pissed off by the end of the session that I don't want to say anything.

I also don't have a T that brings up anything. We could sit there all session quiet if I did not say something. I am not sure if T forgets and just waits or it is T's style.

Now methods to deal with doorknow confessions:
1) Address it honestly
2) Admit you said it but don't want to expand on it
3) Play the "what, I don't remember that" game
4) Play the "you have me confused with another client" game
5) Open the door to the trauma

Those are the only 5 I can think of. I am surprised you can do the "doorknob confessions" as I would be bothered all week until next session.

good luck
