Example text

If we can, in this way, encourage the patient to remain for the four or five weeks (or eight to ten treatment hours) of that month, it is often possible to work through whatever impulsive or acting-out aspects may be involved. There are, of course, no guarantees, but I've discovered that such an arrangement serves to protect the patient and the group. Okay. I understand. Does that make sense to you? Sure. Right. And you would be paying me directly? There are no relatives or third parties in this case?

All right. Then let's discuss another element. This is a verbal group, not an action group. So, in this particular group, patients are asked to put their feelings into words, not into action. So you mean we won't hit each other, right? Oh, for sure, we wouldn't expect any of that. But there are groups that are action groups, in which members are asked to put their experiences into action and not into words. We happen to use a different approach, again not better or worse, but this is the way that we function: it's a verbal, not an action group.

Okay. Dr. Yes, and not just a good fit, but the best one for you. I'm very hopeful and encouraged about the possibilities for the work that you'll continue doing in that group. Pt. Okay, well, I think you have better judgment in that area than I. Dr. Well, what we want to be sure about now is not just my judgment but whether the things that I'm saying to you in terms of the elements of the contract are clear and whether you agree to them. Pt. I just don't know in terms of agreeing in the future.
