Rich Simon on Embracing Vulnerability as Strength

Rich Simon • 9/9/2016

By Rich Simon - Clearly, therapists must always respond with empathy, understanding, and attuned clinical expertise to clients’ suffering. But in their urgency to relieve pain, therapists must not overlook the rich possibilities for health and growth within every person, without which even the most skilled clinician in the world can do nothing. In the end, all clients must, to some extent, be their own healers.

September/October 2018

Rich Simon • 9/5/2018

When I first heard about the growing research on the therapeutic use of psychedelics to treat trauma, I was frankly a bit bemused. But it’s been hard to dismiss the overwhelmingly positive results of early trials. Will psychedelic-assisted therapy continue to gain traction? Will it eventually be practice-changing for everyday clinicians? We can’t know the answer at this point, but what's clear is that the clinical interest in psychedelics is much more than a haphazard, tie-dyed pursuit.

January/February 2018

Rich Simon • 1/8/2018

Three decades ago, doing therapy was a relatively uncomplicated affair. After graduate school, you set up shop as a family therapist, a psychodynamic healer, or a cognitive-behavioral specialist. Whichever model you adopted, you were likely to see yourself as firmly in charge of the process, with your client (or “patient”) following your lead. You, after all, were the expert. Few clinicians felt the need to explain how therapy was going to proceed, or if, indeed, it would even work. It’s a different world now.

A Networker Tribute

Rich Simon • 1/8/2018

To be a young, intellectually curious therapist in the 1960s and ’70s was to fall under the spell of the new systems practitioners, who were redefining what psychotherapy was all about. And no one embodied this new way of practicing the clinical craft with more skill, creativity, and chutzpah than Salvador Minuchin. In light of his recent passing, we pay tribute to his influence on several generations of therapists.
