« I become a Democrat to vote for Obama | Main | George Taylor, non-state climatologist, leaves a loser »

I fully agree with Laurel that this is a very good window into how psychotherapy looks. I had a private practice in my house but with much less involvement with the bathroom than in Paul's office.(Do they all have potty training issues?) What strikes me about Paul, in spite of his Institute training,
he apears to respond more readily than necessary to patients' provocations. His job is to understand his patients. His interpretations seem too premature and so the patients reject them by acting out. I did agree with Paul's tellin Sophie about his ability to find something to love in each of his patients. He should have been more in control of himself with Amy and Alex's provocative behaviors. How in the world did he get a practice composed of Borderlines? Advice to Paul: Take the Kenny Rodgers school of psychotherapy : "You've got to know when to hold'em. Know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away when the dealings done."
