Sorry I am such a royal procrastinator here on this blog. Yes, and I remain so… not because there are not interesting things to write about… but because I have been embroiled in doing the slow and painful clinical work this summer that comprises psychological treatment of extreme emotional states. I know why people shy away from the work, and even insist that it cannot be done. Empathy with extreme states of terror requires the clinician to bear tremendous pain and confusion, and there is a strong urge to push it all away.
Yours in darkness and light,
