Finding a Common Language

© Sonja Freter, 2021

It is very easy to discuss something at length, thinking one has a different approach or interpretation, only to realise that both parties have been talking about the same aspect but using different terminology for it.

Those moments highlight how important language, and up to a point, standardised language is. Discussions like the one above also highlight any areas that have not been given a name/term at all.

During an LCH conference I realised that I refer to events, where the patient already has their belief, as “Confirmative Events”. Some other therapists on the other hand call all events that are not the Causative Event “confirmative events”.

I didn’t find this very clear and would like to explain how I see, and therefore, call those events.
