    I want to say it was a good ethics talk. I did not watch the video and listened to the audio instead and what I took most notice of Mary Jo being talked over and interupted a lot. Sometimes it seemed like it was just an error with playback but she would respond after a while and it really made me feel uncomfortable. I may be wrong though in my perception.

    It was an excellent conversation. I appreciate the humanity and integrity that comes through when MaryJo speaks of setting the stage for therapy,discussing boundaries,creating the safety and holding as well as the need for consultation and constant monitoring of the therapist's self. This is the essence of what it means to do the work, thank you, Mary Jo.

    I particularly appreciated MaryJo's collaborative conversations about the structure of the therapeutic relationship. It made me mindful of 2 of 5 neural channels for relationship connection where the therapist is intentionally activating the care-giving mode while the client is intentionally activating the expressing needs channel and that a shift in in this structure changes the energy flow of the relationship.
