1. Were you encouraged to think independently, to develop your critical faculty? Or were you taught to be obedient rather than mentally active and questioning?
Did your parents project that it was more important to conform to what other people believed than to discover what is true?
When your parents wanted you to do something, did they appeal to your understanding and give you reasons for their request? Or did they communicate in effect, "Do it because I say so"?
2. Did you feel free to express your views openly without fear of punishment?
3. Did your parents communicate their disapproval of your thoughts, desires, or behavior by means of humor, teasing, or sarcasm?
I invite you to participate in an eight-week therapy group of at least five persons (each weekly session will be 1.5hrs)--please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll fine-tune the program.
