    What this work makes me think of is that in looking at certain clients who have had extraordinary success in making positive changes in their lives, perhaps one element that was highly valuable for them was their willingness to put themselves in new situations with enough regularity to create new associations that replaced the old ones. It encourages me to look harder at this aspect of my work in how I conceptualize priorities when setting goals in therapy.

    I liked this session for introducing me to Daniel Kahneman and his thoughtful book. Labeling our systems is grounding to me; reminding us to look at ourselves (we are our best guinea pigs) is validating. The enduring concept of baby steps can bring us back to what works in therapy to change system I. There is much in this webinar of help and can’t wait to read his book. I feel compassion for the suffering that Daniel experienced in the writing but it apparently was worth it. Clearly it is a labor of love.
