“Deepening the Treatment: Testing and Trusting” is based on the premise that almost everyone who crosses the therapist’s threshold is looking for a second chance; a chance to live richer, less restricted lives. Second chances depend on the therapist’s ability to show the patient that

present life is colored by the past. Understanding how the echoes of the past resonate and shape one’s life gives a person new choices and opportunities to resume development and resolve conflicts that are crippling. Such insight gives the patient a beginning sense of mastery not unlike the mastery achieved in learning a new skill. It is up to us as therapists to see to it that our patients are presented with the “imperishable truth” of which Dr. Grotstein speaks.

If psychoanalysis survives, …, it will be because people at long last have come to value the imperishable truth that there is something to be said for being heard by an objectively neutral but empathically interested person who can withstand the rigors and bear the joys of an inner journey with a stranger. (James S. Grotstein, 1985)
