  • Argh!!

    June 29, 2008

  • Sometime it gets used to describe things that should be (should have been), rather than things done specifically for their therapeutic value.

  • "Addicted to Oil" Argh! Quick - find a 12 Step Meeting!!

    June 29, 2008

  • Yea! Calvin & Hobbes!

    June 29, 2008

  • Watch out - this terms gets used in an easy, slippery way that pathologizes the heck out of close relationships.

  • What you are when you think someone else has a problem. Beware all you take-carers who further your take-cared of's problems.

  • A sorta medical, mostly human services-y field.

    June 29, 2008

  • State associated with not drinking or using drugs or ending some negative habit on purpose.

  • Counselor or therapist who orientation is some sort of combination of defined orientations (i.e. psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive, etc.) Not to be confused with integrative (which is the same thing, but tidier??).

  • How the hell did "consumer" become an advocacy term for people using mental health services?? Does that mean I was a producer? How is that empowering for anyone? Quick! Buy more! -- Save the economy, buy a Hummer (or whatever it is I want to attribute to Bush.)

  • Very irritating when used to refer to something that is currently popular or cutting edge. Especially irritating consider the academic and/or clinical setting in which I started overhearing it -- how they absorbed it or from where, dunno.

    June 29, 2008

  • Said so often in health and human services that it almost means nothing. Stolen. Worn out. Even co-opted. Way to ruin something.

  • Happy day!!! (Enjoy your bought of euthymia. I'm sure it will pass. And if you are lucky it'll return.)

  • Can't we just describe someone as alexithymic?

    June 29, 2008

  • Okay - I actually think this is a fun word. But for me it is highly associated with grad school. My nerdy gift to my fellow predoc interns was a cross-word I made. The clue for the item was something like: not recognizing or able to identify one's emotions.

  • Diathesis-Stress Model. We love models.

  • Excellent way to confuse clients that you work with... who says "affective?" A 25 cent word. It'll get you by, but be prepared - irritated professors will ask you to define it or distinguish it from mood and emotions. Then they'll put you on the spot for the different between flat and blunt affect. That is even better during rounds. And think, some of us are still just trying to keep affect (v.) from effect (n.).

  • Using or misusing this word is a in-group password in our social sciences grad program. The concept seems important - I still 'intensely dislike' the word.

  • ga-gy or go-gy. Thank you Kristen! Teaching!!

    June 28, 2008

  • Liberation. Social Contructionism. PoMo? Pedagogy? Help!!

    June 28, 2008

  • Don't confuse with effective. They will know that you are impersonating a serious grad student.

    June 28, 2008

  • This is a tricksy word in the counseling/therapy world for trainees. You have to listen, collect examples and derive what this term means because no one will tell you, and everyone will act like it is obvious. Have fun.

    June 28, 2008

  • Bastardized by all! Find your grant money!!!

    June 28, 2008

  • Empathic -- Em Pathetic...

    June 28, 2008

  • Counselor/therapists -- do you prefer empathetic? or empathic? All I hear is Em Pathetic.

    June 28, 2008

  • Often confused with reflexive in counselor training.

    June 28, 2008

  • Used frequently in counselor training - often confused with reflective for some reason.

    June 28, 2008

  • The joys of psychoanalytic language! Ick.

    June 28, 2008

  • My mind turns off when I hear psychologists use this term. It is also a teaching certification exam. For fun.

    June 28, 2008

  • Find grant money!! (Major 50 Cent word.)

    June 28, 2008

  • When I first ran into aripiprazole (Abilify (R)!!) I started laughing inappropriately in morning report. No one else who worked at the psych hospital even blinked an eye at the name.

    June 28, 2008

  • I tell my students -- "Want in? Learn to drop 'a paucity of research in X.' You'll sound really impressive." (Dearth is last year - or last decade. Or something.)

    June 28, 2008

  • Irritation, constipation, aggravation, consternation, deprivation, agitation, infuriation, machination... Supposedly independent project that serves a gatekeeping function.
