You know, this lot of co-workers is challenging in some ways.
I have mentioned before that we have a psychologist who believes in
a. Angels that come and guide her
b. Conspiracy theories about Port Arthur.
The angels I shut up about, the conspiracy theories I could not suppress myself about.
I sorta kinda hafta (I could say flat no, but I'd feel mean) go to a series of psychotherapy sessions that are supposed to be meeting some peer supervision requirements, and some staff support functions, and be teaching us about "expressive therapies".
Now, we all moan about not having enough reflective time, and de-briefing time, and staff development.
These moans seem to me quite reasonable.
So... the Powers That Be came up with paying a part-timer, who is well-versed in Expressive Therapies, to run a few, but regular, sessions re what I said above.
Now....some analytic theories I have a major new respect for via Attachment research.
If I have to do play therapy, I will, but only if I have to, and then only under certain conditions........but, on Thursday, I was forced to sit quietly and politely while Souls and Past Lives and ANGELS got talked about.
I have no problem with people believing in, and talking about, such things....but in MY WORK TIME????
Cool, in debate ( but I can't debate, I have to shut up)....and I really have better ways of spending any development time I have.
But.....as I said, work-places are delicate.
Well, I will take what I can......
