Re the allegedly questionable efficacy of psychological /post-trauma
counselling, it can to be sure sometimes at worst or at it's least
appropriate be a blunt and crude instrument, but, surely almost always it's
far, far preferable that the 'counselee' be given the opportunity to vent
feelings and emotions of all kinds shapes and forms onto a [one must hope]
'skilled' listener: even if such proves only minimally therapeutic, it
will have indeed helped simply via the mechanism of 'talking about it' and
I do, from not inconsiderable personal and professional experience,
fervently believe that it's generally unadulterated balderdash and
unreconstructed tripe to suggest that being able to talk freely to a
sympathetic listener can ever hinder rather than help in these
circumstances......end of rant.......
Well ranted David.
To be or not to be .....
