  • How are chaos and complexity theory relevant to our work as therapists?

    Approach/issue: Integrative

    As a therapist, have you ever struggled valiantly, but hopelessly against the entrenched resistance of a client who says they are desperate to change, but are actually digging their heels in at every turn, reacting with “yes, but …” to each and every suggestion? These kinds of situations can often leave you with the sense that you are much more invested in their self-actualisation than they are, and that your therapeutic efforts on their behalf are somewhat like Sisyphos pushing the boulder uphill.

  • Where Next in Psychotherapy for Depression?

    Approach/issue: Depression
    Blue Monday was long ago exposed as a PR stunt, a construct cooked up to sell holidays. But the third Monday of January still brings with it a glut of depression-themed news stories. So perhaps it is a good moment to consider psychotherapy’s complex relationship with depression, which is not immune to marketplace influences. Stephen Barton, co-author of a new book about CBT for depression, thinks a reorientation of focus is necessary. If therapists are to help address the worldwide growth in depression, he argues, we need to stop dwelling on our treatment ‘successes’ – and start putting more energy into considering our ‘failures’.

To mark the publication of his new book, Nurturing Children: From Trauma to Growth Using Attachment Theory, Psychoanalysis and Neurobiology, Graham Music explains why neglect can come to be repeated in the consulting room – and what therapists can do to allow aliveness to flourish.
