Thought for the Day: Yesterday, I was very busy & did not have time to write a post, but I did get an idea for today's trivia question. I met with a new client who needs to undergo a serious heart operation in a couple of weeks. The odds for a bad outcome (death, paralysis, brain damage) are 1 in 20. Understandably, they are frightened. Since the client's mother died young, they fear that the worst will happen to them. They feel sure history will repeat itself & are afraid they will leave their children without a parent. Here's my trivia question:

                True or False: Psychotherapy can improve the outcome of 
            high risk surgery.

What are your thoughts? Come back on Thursday for the answer.
