We explored a lot of anger today–anger at parents, moms and dads and other caregivers. Several people wrote letters to their parents and read them today so that was interesting. No one has told me what letters to write, but i am only in my second week of therapy. The time will come.
I already have two assignments–one is to write a timeline of events, positive and negative, in your life that were significant. So I need to do that first, they say. Then I draw a graveyard of my losses in life and why they were significant. So I will get to work on those in the next week or so.
We also had a guy “graduate” from therapy today. He said he has run out of his medical leave and has to go back to work but said he would continue therapy individually to continue to control his issues. SO that was kind of a neat process to watch, where they asked him questions about how wgell he had done and how far he had come.
THey used to not have all these specific processes, so I think it’s interesting to see how the program has changed since I was last in it.
WEll, I need to get ready for a conference for class so I am going to run. Hope everyone has a good end of the week and weekend.
