I am just curious. Is it just me? So my daughter agreed to do intake at a psychiatry/therapy practice. One of those larger places that take medi-caid. So it was like a parent interview w one lady, 3 intake sessions w this other therapist. My daughter agreed, because she wants medications. She, to be fair, does not want therapy, as it has been pretty negative for her. Therapists don't understand her, but teachers and psychiatrists do. The second appointment, near the end, the intake lady asked my daughter about therapy, she glared, and said she didn't want therapy. She walked out. This was after like an hour of personal questions. The intake lady was very withering, and kept saying I needed therapy, and needed to rethink how I dealt with my daughter. I mean ...am I just a completely ridiculous mom, or was she being mean? My daughter's school's principal said that practice had a lot of kids who just play games with their therapist, so they can qualify to see a psychiatrist. When I asked if she could do that ...OMG, did I get a very cold lecture. The reason my daughter doesn't like therapy, is they tend to see her fear as her being a brat. But you have to see a therapist to get medications. No teacher or psychiatrist ever sees her that way, but therapists always do. Has anyone ever had a very negative experience like this? My self esteem is very shaky right now. If I was wrong, how was I? I guess she just shouldn't have therapy and can't get medications.
