Success stories from this week?
I just finished with a therapy client who has expressed suicidal ideation in the past. We had a really good session today! She had a more positive outlook on life, and she expressed some real insight into emotion regulation. She even did her "homework" (I see her every other week at a clinic and she never turned in her homework for other therapists in the past) and brought it back and was excited about it. It was a great way to end a busy week!

success story
I had a student approach me on Monday because he had something happen at home over the weekend. He has been quite fragile in the past. I couldn't meet with him because my father was very ill. I asked him if it was okay to meet on Tuesday. He was able to keep his emotions under control until then and I met with him as promised.

I'm proud of him not only for seeking me out but also for being able to sit with uncomfortable emotions for an extra day without breaking down.

Very cool, eeza! I love to see growth in students- especially self-advocacy and self-control! :)
