In this hour we will explore the many reasons why psychotherapy might feel ineffective, leading people to terminate from the process prematurely or to seek out treatment somewhere else. We will look at the “cognitive and emotional” baggage that some clients bring in to the therapy process, which leads to preconceived notions and assumptions about the therapeutic relationship and the value of therapy itself. We will also explore the role that the therapist plays in rendering therapy ineffective, including getting triggered, imposing their own agenda, not having the appropriate skill set or not fully understanding the client’s needs, wishes and feelings. We will discuss the importance of not framing therapy as a “failure” when it doesn’t work out, but rather, listeners will learn to think about these experiences as opportunities to use their voice and proactively advocate to get their needs met.
