Is Therapy About Transformation, or Small Breakthroughs?

  • Interesting article – from a therpist’s perspective – about transformation and whether it is necessary in therapists to first experience transformation themselves for the benefit of clients
  • the article also explores whether transformation is achievable – truly – in any human being – including therapists – but rather small breakthroughs facilitate sufficient change for personal agency and wellbeing

“…most therapy cases don’t lead to dramatic changes. A lot of clients just want to get past an episode of depression they’re suffering through, or learn to manage chronic anxiety in a more constructive way. Or a couple wants to stop fighting and enjoy each other more. In Freud’s terms, these clients just want to love and work.”
