Motivation

Therapy is so very often about motivation –  how to get yourself to do this or stop that; or get your partner to.  In recent months, I’ve seen a lot of people out of work or unable to work and so they’re having real problems in figuring out how to structure the day or even to get themselves out.

In my Musing on How to Get Yourself to do Hard Stuff, I suggest a number of strategies I’ve used before.  So often, particularly for women, the best strategy is someone else to do it with.  Which strategy do you think works best for you?

The one I needed for this writing was having a deadline.

I received my doctoral degree in Psychology from the University of Kansas in 1977. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Texas at Austin Counseling Center. Since then, I have been a research associate at the Institute of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Texas, a founding associate of Family Eldercare, and have been in private practice with my husband, Dr. William Dubin, at Psychological ARTS since 1980.
