|graffiti confusion. I like.|
Stuff that hasn't gone over well in the last week:
Class last week: We had just finished watching the most boring movie I have ever seen of a play therapy session with a little girl who had been having trouble sleeping.
Professor: So can any of you recommend anything for a way to help the kid fall asleep?
Alien: (under breath..) ya... tell the mom to play that movie for her.
Professor: Excuse me? (paired with the most serious death stare ever)
Alien: Oh.. uh nothing. Maybe uhhh.. advise the mom on a token economy reward system? (nice recovery points)
Meeting with my supervisor last night. We had finished talking about the kid clients we shared.
Supervisor: Ok cecilia, well I think were done. I don't think we have any other kids together.
Alien: Ya. Im pretty sure I would know if we had kids together. (chuckle)
Supervisor: (blank death stare) Ummm... what?
Alien: Oh nothing. Sorry. Uhhh.. see you next week.
Class today. We were reviewing the case file of a girl who ran away to live with her boyfriend in Idaho.
Professor: So what do you guys think?
Alien: Well... what is in Idaho? What part did she move to and why?
Professor: Ummm... Moscow I think.
Alien: Oh.. it seems we have a bigger problem.
Professsor: What's that?
Alien: Well.... she seems to have actually moved to Russia.
Professor: (blank stare)
Alien: Sorry. Ya. bad joke. Moscow, Idaho. Got it.
Class today half hour later. We are reviewing a case of another girl.
Professor: (describing the case for 5 min) blah blah.. client comes in presenting with the problem that she has bitten her step dad and made him bleed...blah blah blah. What would you diagnose the client with?
Alien: Well... Axis 1 I would say either maybe Bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder.
Professor: Any Axis 2 Clinical Diagnosis?
Alien: Yes... Vampire
Professor: (blank stare round 500) What?
Alien: Just kidding. Biting is very serious. I am sorry....
Anyway... back to class for the next couple hours. Definitely keeping my mouth on lock.
SIDE NOTE: Clients cases were hypothetical case vignettes in class and Im not breaking confidentiality. Don't you worry. Also... I can refrain from making jokes during real therapy sessions. I have boundaries... gimme a little credit.
