> Dear friends,

> I'm amazed at the complexity of your hyperdrama, and
> dismayed at the out-of-touch quality of your hyperdrama.
> Please let me offer several comments about the latter:

> 1. One of the transcripts I glanced at was noted as the
> 76th session. In the world of managed care, there's no
> way a managed care gatekeeper would approve 76 therapy
> sessions. Managed care companies want brief,
> problem-oriented courses of psychotherapy, not endless
> or open-ended courses of Tx.

> 2. Speaking of transcripts, most of us in the therapy
> trenches do not have the luxury of having our sessions
> transcribed, nor do we have the time to read through
> transcriptions, ours our someone else's. We barely have
> time to take notes during sessions, then deal with the
> gatekeepers.

> Thanks for listening.
