Just a thought. Your psychologist may be using psychoanalytic technique, which means you will get a blank slate response from him. He won't say anything; you're to look inside of yourself to see what that kind of response this brings up in you and tell him.

I've told my psychiatrist that I hate the blank slate. It just makes me feel worse. Indifference is a great choice of words.

My pdoc has never said "that is too bad" or "I'm sorry." He just says, "you went through some awful (terrible, etc.) things as a child."

I told him I wanted him to say exactly what you want. He was pleased that I told him, and I guess by telling him, I was getting this from myself.

It's very difficult to deal with such a seemingly detached person, but they do have their ways of getting to our issues.

You might want to consider psychodynamic therapy as that is much more touchy, feely at least in my years of experience with my therapist.

Can you articulate what it is that you want from him? If so, that's a first step.
good luck,
