Slightly off topic, my Rabbi told my class this week that all Jewish festivals can be condensed into three points:
1. They tried to kill us
2. We beat them
3. Let's eat!

More on topic (!). I realise that I know too little about clinical psychology to be able to reduce the core points to two, which is a learning experience of its own.
Fail, fail again, fail better.

I like these two twos best, not sure I can think of anything better...interesting to me that several of the responses focus entirely purely on core therapy skills...psychologists aren't always therapists, as such.

This one is interesting too, because the evidence is for problems, not the people...so it gives a flavour of how contradictory and conflicted our profession is.

I guess I was thinking of how I'd want a client to understand us, and how I understand clients (and myself). I guess the broader role is more:
1. Apply scientific methods to understanding human behaviour and distress
2. Work at many levels drawing on many models

As you can see, I don't like lingo!

More lightheartedly:

1. Post Freudians
2. Post Beckians
Some people are different from the rest of us, and so are the rest of us.

I would condense that even further:

1. We're sad - no eating.
2. We're happy - let's eat!!

Hahahaha :lol: - happy Purim later this week LaLeonessa, and Hamantaschen all round (I've made a huge papier mache Hamantaschen hat to wear on Wednesday night, and I'm going to look like a complete plonker if no-one else dresses up much :oops: )
