What does assessment and treatment look like?
Assessment and treatment are ongoing parts of the therapeutic work. It is an organic process that is often fluid in nature, arising out of areas of distress, concern, or blocked areas of functioning. Both, the patient and the therapist are involved in asking questions as they arise; and offer clues to insight, breakthroughs, and new perspectives.
Although new questions or new areas of conflict may stir up criticism and concerns of a regression in functioning, they could also indicate “tuning back in” and readiness to address/change difficult or anxiety-producing areas that once were too “hot” (overstimulating) or too “cold” (dissociated) to touch. Therapy is marked by moments and periods of questioning and insight and guide the person’s development and course of treatment.
