How Many Times Have You Been Asked This Question?

June 30, 2016580Views

From Buzzfeed.  How many times have you been asked this question by family, friends, and first time acquaintances– what’s therapy? What do you really do?  Why should I go to therapy?  Or perhaps the more innocuous– how do I know if my friend needs therapy?  Ann Borges has compiled a (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) list after interviewing two clinicians.  The list includes some standard responses like

Your moods and emotions feel out of control lately

and

You want to improve your relationships and be a better partner

To more humorous ones such as

You’re miserable at your job

and

You need a job

It’s probably one of the more comprehensive lists I’ve seen in awhile.  It might help prepare you for those inevitable questions or conversations.  Also, consider posting the list on your own professional website for the benefit of potential clients.  To see the whole list, click the link below.

Do you have anything to add?  Any entry you disagree with?  We would love to hear from you!  Please share them in the comments section below or on Facebook.
