I know that perception is a very individual thing. I do understand that my loved ones perception is vastly different then my own. 23 hours of the day I love that about him.
But you know those times when you might be in doc’s office or in therapy with your loved one and even though you both heard the same person talking; it makes you wonder, when you and your loved one takes the info in a completely surprising and originally different directions
first and foremost I NEVER just assume that I’m right and he’s wrong. He might be privy to some backstory that I know nothing about. Sometimes I do have trust my judgement and advocate and hit the breaks. That’s what I’m there for. This new therapist doesn’t seem to want to listen to me.
I usually try to look at the different view point from therapist and my brother both, with a sense of humor if I can. Unless it’s something so surprising I don’t know how to process it. I have brought along a small tape recorder many times and it still didn’t quite help cut the confusion this time.
I know this is vague. But are there any ideas in dealing with a new therapist who seems just as omnipotent as my brother seems surprised and I seem confused? Always open to new ideas. My lifeguard senses are starting to twitch. It might be time to jump in and make a save.
