Why do therapists cry? They cry when they are frustrated, when they don’t get their desired result, when they have been harmed, when they have hurt someone emotionally or physically. Therapists cry because they want to help others and not because they want to escape from reality. A therapist is trained by a psychotherapist to provide effective communication and effective psychotherapy. It is the psychotherapist’s job to assist the client in managing his/her life. The client then realizes that he/she is capable of making decisions and can take control over his/her life.
There are different forms of therapy and all forms require training. The effectiveness of any form of therapy depends on the person who is receiving it. Some people respond to one type of therapy more effectively than other people do. When a person is suffering from a negative disorder, such as anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse or social phobia, he/she needs a different kind of therapy. In this case, therapists often combine their efforts with those provided by cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
Why do therapists get attached to their patients? Therapy helps people get rid of their fears. This is why when the client comes for therapy, the therapist asks questions about what the client is afraid of and tries to eliminate the fear by offering creative activities that are safe for the client. When the client is afraid of jumping out of the car, the therapist offers the client relaxation techniques that can help the client get rid of his fear and go for the car ride.
Why do therapists cry when they feel sad or depressed? This is because everybody goes through sad moments in his/her life. Sadness leads to tears; therefore, the emotional release through crying is very natural. Psychotherapy helps clients discover what causes their sadness and help them move on with their lives. Sometimes, psychotherapists use storytelling as a way to create an atmosphere of comfort and healing.
Why do therapists cry when they switch strategies? This is because during behavioral therapy, therapists are taught to respond differently when presenting the same situation to different clients. If, for instance, the client tells the therapist he/she wants to do a trick, the therapist will ask the client to imagine doing the trick. When this scenario is presented again to the client, the therapist will change his/her strategy to one of performing the trick.
Why do therapists take the time to break up a big event into several smaller ones? This is because a single occurrence of trauma can trigger the onset of multiple symptoms. For instance, if a child was left alone in a room for a long time, she may exhibit signs of depression. If she were to be reunited with her family, she may exhibit signs of anxiety. Therefore, by breaking up a traumatic event into many smaller ones, therapists can better identify which are related and which are unrelated.
Why do therapists get attached to a case study? Sometimes, when a case study is shared with other therapists, it sparks discussion about what really happened. Asking the client’s questions such as why did this occur or what did happen, leads the clients to draw their own conclusions from the information. The therapist may then go out of his way to relate some of the things that he/she has heard to his/her own experiences.
Why do therapists love numbers? This is because the number one reason that most people get sick is because they eat too much. When I was young, I always counted the calories in everything I ate. When I got sick, I would eat until I felt sick. In this type of therapy relationship, the client can tell the therapist exactly what she eats. Because of this, the therapist might think the client is eating healthy because he/she is maintaining the right amount of nutrition.
