Loss is everybody's business, and whether large or small, losses' occur constantly. Now arid then, in the practice of psychotherapy with one of IllY patients, things just do not work out very well, and I sense an inllninent loss. The sessions seem to progress okay, but the chemistry between the patient and nle is wrong. Whatever the reason, I tell myself that a psychotherapist cannot expect to be able to help everyone-a great rationalization, with an elelnent of truth. Meanwhile, the patient may politely say he or she would rather see someone else or is now feeling better and needs no further therapy. If done in this manner, we both save face. However, for me, there is still a sense of loss.
