Example text

She knew deep inside herself that everything would turn out all right if only she would recommit herself to life and love. And so she did. This brief but powerful religious experience helped her to change, and even on follow-up a year later she was doing well. I’ve known other people over the years who have had just as powerful experiences: People who had come back from the brink of suicide by noticing a coworker smiling when they said “Good morning,” or by simply writing with pencil and paper about their torment and life; people who joined a support group and after three meetings were already on the road to resolving a long-standing problem; people who found hope or inspiration in a magazine article or book, or in a casual, over-the-fence conversation with a neighbor; people who, without looking for change, found their view of life different simply by driving out West and looking up toward the sky from the bottom of a canyon.

It doesn’t mean being foolhardy, irresponsible, or dangerous, but it does mean being brave enough to try something different, being flexible and pragmatic enough to stimulate change, rather than retreating from change by being too rigid and purist. When you feel stuck, try something else, even if it is to talk about being stuck. Rather than absorbing their helplessness, show the family through your behavior the value and workings of commitment and perseverance in the face of problems. Keep trying and keep moving within the session.

This is a skill that your training and sensitivity have prepared you to do and your courage allows you to accomplish. When the content seems overwhelming or without meaning, it is the process, like the patterns and holes and problems, that you can return to and center upon. It enables you to step back and take the long shot, see and change the patterns as they are unfolding, “catch” yourself and pull yourself out of the swirl, and consciously put on the brakes. Even though most of us, including the families we see, are good at recognizing the process in others—“There he goes again, always interrupting me”—the skill becomes lost in seeing it in ourselves or in relationships where the patterns and process are so powerful.
