  •  Correction of typo I made (4+ / 0-)

    I meant to say that,  based on studies, the degree to which high functioning autistics benefit from psychotherapy or talk therapy is debated. I was mandated to attend counseling as a foster child.  I found therapy with one counselor helpful in providing me with a cognitive model for approaching life's disappointments, but I had one therapist who demanded I reveal emotions to her that she was just sure were stuffed deep down inside me but which I simply did not feel or did not feel like discussing, and I felt bullied and badgered and hated every minute of it but the only way to get the sessions to end eventually was to say what she wanted to hear.

    It just takes a very smart approach I think, and it should not be assumed everyone would automatically be traumatized by something typical people consider traumatizing.

      that sounds horrible. I didn't have a pleasant experience in child therapy either (I was also one who didn't want to talk about my emotions, which seemed to really piss her off) but nothing compared to that.

      So sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. I hope she is no longer practicing...
