Our expert says:
Personally, no I wouldn't. Therapist or not, I wonder what people who insist on putting up such obvious pictures of their family in their business office, are actually trying to say. Is i "Hey, look ! I'm a regular guy, and I even hav a wife and kids " ? Anyhow, I am concerned that there seem to be too many people in SA offering Psychotherapy who seem to have been VERY inadequatley trained, and seem irresponsibly unaware of issues like transference or how to deal with it. It is HI|GHLY unprofessional for any therapist to be showing photos of his newborn child to ANY patient -- that's naive showing-off and not at all therapeutic or responsible. And how would one patient know whether he'd shown private pictures to another patient ? Do they routinely gossip about the content of their sessions ?
I dont see how indulgently displaing private pictures of the terapist's private like is an acceptable or proper part of ANY form of therapy. Scheme therapy is one many many systems invented and marketed by individuals, making large claims, buit lacking in proper quality research provin effectiveness.
Personallt, too ( and this makes me unpopular with psychoanalysts ) I am sceptical about any treatment that lasts for years without significant progress, especially when it uses unproven methods and untested claims. That's a pension scheme for the therapist, not a genuine treatment
