Elisha Goldstein on the Importance of Setting Aside What You Know as a Therapist to Ask Clients What They Need.
What do you need?
It’s a simple question, but not for someone who’s depressed. That’s why asking, with genuine curiosity, can be the beginning of a healing process for clients whose depression is fed by the sense that everything happens to them and that they have absolutely no control.In this video clip, mindfulness specialist, Elisha Goldstein, explains how asking this simple question begins a nurturing, strengthening process, that leads eventually to the client’s sense of having control—”I know what I need. I can take care of myself.
