| | Therapist showing movies for a counseling session?
Is this normal? My husband and I went to our first ever marital counseling session and the therapist asked us if we wanted to do this program. Of course, at this point it's pretty desperate. So we said yes.
She asked us a few short questions, and then proceeded to play a movie for 35 minutes. It was kind of cheesy, made back in the late 80's or early 90's... Then she said that we would have "homework" to do, and there were five more sessions (consisting of 5 more movies).
Is this normal? How is this any different than just purchasing a home therapy treatment? I guess I was just expecting more...talking and work from her part, not just throwing in a movie to the VHS. Seems a little weird.
We're going to find somebody else, but I just thought this was odd. Have other people experienced this?
