This podcast is the narrated version of my article 10 Therapy Questions to Get to the Root of the Problem.
The idea here is that before assuming something’s seriously wrong with our client, we should assess they are meeting the Primal Human Needs we all share. When we find what needs aren’t being met properly, that can guide us in our therapeutic strategy.
In this episode I talk about:
- To function well, certain basic needs have to be met, and there are other needs than just the obvious ones
- How to check your clients’ fuel levels, and what to do if they’re low
- Why ‘small talk’ can yield big discoveries and what to do with those
