Isn't it the therapist's job to understand what it should be? Shouldn't they control the noise level, the "sound design" and the nature of the conversation so that recovery is brought to the forefront? After all, therapy isn't about looking better so that you'll feel better about yourself - it encompasses so much more than that. I envy Jason's authority. John W. If language be not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success.
Perhaps Jason can tell us how he does this without offending anyone. Maybe offense isn't as large a consideration in his position.
John, I can understand why the guy in charge doesn't say anything, given his responsibilities otherwise, but why isn't there any discussion about this issue among the staff? Maybe you could do something on "sound design" and introduce the subject in this way. Bas Asselbergs. Just a thought about the boss NOT saying anything; unlike Jason, who works in an environment I assume where authority and constructive criticism is much more a given, the workplace for PTs seems to be a "let's all be gentle and caring and non-confrontational" type of setting.
The banter is the PTs ONLY way to add some enjoyment to their plodding day of regurgitating crap, with no end in sight.

Needless to say, it would only take a simple but brave step to change that - a visit here for instance, or some reading, or self-reflection We don't see things as they are, we see things as WE are - Anais Nin I suppose it's easier to believe something than it is to understand it. Ronald Melzack. You're right, Bas.
Everyone deals with ennui differently. Some people stew in it, some people try to take their minds off of it my listening to themselves talk.

In either case, the focus is certainly not on the patient. So, the banter is just another symptom of a constrained mind. It'd be interesting, though, to address this in a professional staff meeting, which our clinic hasn't had in about 3 months due to everyone's conflicting and busy schedules. I wonder where a conversation about the "sound design" might lead? I suspect it would likely come back to what the elements of a therapeutic encounter should be.
Uh oh Barrett, I should know this, but have you written an essay that addresses the elements of the therapeutic environment such as this? That might be something I could send to the staff as a way to prime them for a discussion about the noisome noise. John, I appreciate the question. I don't think I've written anything all that specific, but The Chair comes to mind.
This piece is more metaphorical than directive, but the design of any department must look continually toward a set of principles agreed upon by the staff. It would be a good idea for the director to articulate those principles. I don't work with any directors like that currently. Maybe Jason will find me a job in Texas. I'd work for him any day.

The way you wrote this makes it sound like the therapist talking about themselves to patients is normal? You are allowed to talk about your own life to that degree? I thought that was a big no-no? Or at least here it is Buy this book from Amazon. Are you more real than Oedipus?

Some five thousand versions of life later, she was working on rock cover songs with a band when it dawned on her that she had something to say of her own.
An overwhelming response from her fans eventually drove a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign, and the recording and production of Three Roads Home.
