The Art of Reflection: Turning the Strange into the Familiar

Kaethe Weingarten, Ph.D.Kaethe

This article provides a conceptual model for thinking about what a good reflection does and illustrates how reflections can be part of any relationship, not just clinical ones.   I address how writing can serve reflection, even when the material involves traumatic material, allowing integration to take place at the time or long after. Kaethe Weingarten, PhD, an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, directs the Witnessing Project and is currently choreographing movement witnessing events.  Watch her video abstract.
