    Treatment Guideline's EffectAbstractWorking with trauma survivors leads to intense counter transference reactions. These are counterproductive to the efficacious treatment environment of survivor empowerment.

Both of these assumptions lead to decreased survivor empo...

Although the two careers optometry and occupational therapy are similar because of ...
  • Patient Therapist Relationships
    807 words
    Multicultural Counseling After reading the many articles on the notion of diagnosis and counseling with multicultural / ethnic patients, it has come to my attention that this focus is solely based on stereotypical attitudes. Sure, it can be said that it is important for a therapist to have a background of the patient's heritage and culture, but doesn't this necessarily mean that the outlook of the therapist will be put in a box by doing so? I think multicultural competency is a ridiculous way to...

Essentially then this means that an...

Hence, even when DID is diagnosed it usually takes multiple weeks-or ev...
