As some of you may know, I’m a therapist to children with severe mental illness.
The hardest part of my job is usually working with the caregivers because most of them are very resistant to participating in the clients treatment. One caregiver in particular has made very little contact with me, and everytime something happens with client she doesn’t even bother to tell me. Client and I have been trying to get her to participate in family therapy since we started meeting. Today I received a text message from her saying that she wants to start family therapy with her kiddo! It’s a goddamn miracle! I don’t even care that this means I’m gonna have to schedule in another late afternoon session. I’m just so happy for my client that her caregiver is finally coming around to participating, especially because it means so much to my client. It’s really a wonderful way to end my work week.
Any good news on your end?
