Sometimes therapists, especially those new to the field, have a powerful wish to be good at their job. And, sometimes this wish clouds their view of their flaws and mistakes. The shame that comes from recognizing one has made a mistake that hurt a patient can be 1/3
2/3 overwhelming. And, it’s common to try to avoid that shame. But, it is important to stay open to the aspects of ourselves that we don’t like. Being aware of the kinds of mistakes and flaws we may have allows us to avoid defensiveness and validate the experience people
3/3 may have of us when we are not at our best. Patient’s often find it a relief when we acknowledge our mistakes and painful when we don’t. #psychoanalysis #psychotherapy #psychology #psychstudent #psychtwitter #therapistsconnect #TherapistTwitter

Psychoanalytic therapists posting on Twitter often use theoretical/technical terms not understood by general public, or name-drop about theorists unknown to public. Untrained/uninformed Insta-therapists are communicating clearly, legit professionals are not.

We must change this.
/2 I can’t count no. of times I’ve described a psychoanalytic *concept* or *idea* on Twitter—in a straightforward way accessible to anyone—only to have a colleague respond by naming an individual theorist—& thereby steering thread in an arcane direction accessible only to a TINY

I've been writing about #Stoicism and #psychotherapy for nearly a quarter of a century now. I started by giving talks on Stoicism at conferences for psychotherapists and discussing it with student counsellors, therapists, coaches, etc., on the training programs I ran in the UK.
My first book on Stoicism was meant to be an overview of the history of its influence on modern psychotherapists, for academics and clinicians. Instead, it became more widely read among nonacademics and "laypersons". Stoicism then became more popular, partly due to Stoic Week.
Authors like Bill Irvine, Ryan Holiday, and Massimo Pigliucci were reaching a wider audience of nonacademics. Communities for Stoicism formed on the Internet. Stoicism became a "thing" again. But something did NOT happen. To my surprise, psychotherapists largely ignored it.

REFLECTIONS ON FORGIVENESS // FORGIVENESS OF SELF // NO CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST JESUS // ROMANS 8:1

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

Blessed Friyay morning to you all, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus today will be within 1st John , chapter 3. This chapter deals EXCLUSIVELY with our identities as children of God. We are encouraged to strive to be a people of ethical integrity & to live a life that is reflective of our spiritual identity.
In verse 20, we are reminded of the truth that God is actually GREATER THAN OUR HEART. People of God, this is a quite profound assertion! 🤯🤯🤯

I SO respect & appreciate @ZJAyres sharing this today. There is ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY nothing wrong with taking medication to improve your #mentalhealth . I used to be vehemently opposed to taking psychotropic medication…
because of stigma & my Christian upbringing. NOW, based on my own lived experiences & through seeking out EXTENSIVE knowledge in the #mentalhealth space, I have a VERY different view of #mentalhealth & medications than most followers of Christ do.
Here’s the thing. Often times, people NEED medication to bring back the levels of their brain chemicals to where it needs to be. And that’s totally OK. Everyone’s condition is a little bit different.

1/For those who live out of the US, It’s crucial to know that democracy in the US is a big MESS. #HumanRights & #CivilRights are far worse than Islamic states.
@TheJusticeDep is the source of #INJUSTICE because judges& even lawyers whose job is to defend
@POTUS @marklevinshow
@VP
2/defendants are fully under control of those who know their secrets (CORRUPT agents @CIA @FBI..who abuse power in their political& personal gains), all work in a vicious cycle, CORRUPT agents frame up people, then judge, prosecutor& lawyer intentionally destroy their lives.
@seanhannity
3/In fact, what is happening in US Judicial system is not only an outrageous assault on human dignity, but destruction of whole humanity by violation of people’s Civil& Constitutional Rights& imposing psychological stresses & finacial, physical damages.

Who is a psychologist? Why do we need one? I'm not crazy, why should I visit a psychologist? I would rather talk to a friend instead of talking to a psychologist. Approaching a psychologist puts my honour at risk, and also my family's.
Several questions of such kind always occur in our mind, when it is suggested to us to visit a psychologist. We need to understand why it is important to talk to a psychologist when in need. We need to understand the importance of being aware, and taking care of our mental health
And before that, it is important to understand what a psychologist is and how he or she can help us when in need.

In #FamilyMedicine we care across the lifespan. We have long-term relationships with our patients. We're in a unique position to advocate for our patients and for changes in our healthcare system. Here's my clinic's journey and why I worry (1/5) #onpoli #MedTwitter #primarycare Image
When I finished training to become a #FamilyDoctor, I wanted to create a space for everyone to feel safe and supported. I converted a little brick house into a clinic and opened CommonGroundGlebe (2/5). #MedTwitter #DoctorsDay #onpoli Image
We do #perinatal care, #Pediatrics, #geriatrics, #psychotherapy. We care for multiple generations. We do #palliative care home visits. I’ve cried at the bedside when patients gave birth, and also when they died. This is in jeopardy (3/5). #MedTwitter #onpoli #DoctorsDay #COVID19 Image

Dearest colleagues, friends, public (anyone who wants to know), I’m going to tell you about an urban family doctor’s job before & during #COVID19 Here’s my story as told in 16 tweets (1/17): #medtwitter #onpoli @ontarionurses @OntariosDoctors @OntarioCollege
I take care of 1400 patients in @ottawacity in a #patientcentredcare clinic with a rainbow flag and the words “Common Ground.” I have many #LGBTQ patients, and also #Indigenous patients and #mentalhealth and many who live with physical/cognitive disabilities. (2/17) @CBCOttawa
Before the pandemic, I’d start at 9am with #Pediatrics, immunizations, answering questions, addressing parental #depression and #anxiety. Then I’d see other patients with infections, injuries, #diabetes, chronic illnesses. My clinics ended at 6pm, then paperwork. 5 days/wk (3/17)

Interesting client. She has seen 1 psychiatrist and 2 therapists and was not satisfied with them.

She: All #therapists are such @R$eholes.
Me: Why?
She:They are so full of themselves
Me: Go on....
She:I know more than them
Me: I noticed that
She:Tell me what is DBT
Me:Show me
And that broke the ice.

I am just so glad that I wl be working with her - this one is going to challenge me, make me reach deep within myself. Not many clients make you do that.

Quite looking forward to just listening and facilitating + the occasional challenge thrown her way.
She raised an imp point though.Many therapists focus too much on their own agenda,method,theoretical favorites etc despite clear evidence that a client's inner world is the best place to start things off fm. We need to 1st tune in to discover which approach works w/ which client.

I dove into the FEC data, and it's pretty clear:

Grassroots health professional donors far prefer Sanders and Warren to Biden and Buttigieg. 1/
For doctors, donations went mostly to Warren and Sanders, with Sanders slightly receiving more.

Buttigieg received a substantial portion.

Biden received very little.

#MedTwitter #MedStudentTwitter
@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie To me this corroborates the polls which show that while medical trade groups/guilds/professional societies might not support policies like #MedicareForAll, grassroots doctors feel differently. 3/

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

Thread. Medical Hysteria and #InternationalWomensDay

In 1882, Anna O is considered 'patient zero' for the diagnosis of "Hysteria"

#Hysteria was originally a diagnosis only given to women

Anna O fell ill in 1880 after her father died, possibly of Tuberculosis
2. Her symptoms: severe 'nervous' #cough, paralysis, numbness, vision/hearing/speech disturbances, hallucinations, #cognitive difficulties

She was diagnosed with "Hysteria" by Breuer and Freud in ~1882

#InternationalWomensDay
3. Breuer claimed that he cured Anna O of #Hysteria using 'talking out' therapy (a very early forerunner to #psychotherapy)

His claim was false

10-20% of pregnant women experience depression and/or anxiety during the perinatal period. (peri=around, natal=birth). #MaternalMHMatters #PerinatalMentalHealth
Maternal prenatal stress has been associated with a range of negative outcomes in the baby.. such as obstetric outcomes (e.g. preterm birth, low birth weight), emotional outcomes, behavioural outcomes and cognitive outcomes. Review: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
The biological basis for this is still poorly understood. More research is needed in this area to help identify early markers (as well as protective factors) and to help inform early interventions to ensure the best possible outcome for the mother and the baby.
