"In Treatment" is Back In-Session at HBO



I am so excited to watch the next installment of In Treatment tonight. I've written about this very special television show before

In Treatment goes deep into the session work of psychotherapy, with each episode focusing on a particular patient. It is a brilliantly layered half-an-hour show, highlighting powerful aspects of psychoanalysis, the healing power of therapy, as well as the character flaws and missteps the talented therapist makes along the way.

Crap...we don't have HBO. If it makes it to a DVD boxed set, I will rent :)

I just bought the DVD first year set on Amazon. And last year, HBO had some free viewings online. Maybe they'll do that again.

Dang, I wish I paid for HBO. Maybe I'll get the season on DVD...

It might help my dear family / friends understand what can go on in a session.

I watched the first five sessions yesterday and today - and while they were good, I felt that the first season was more impressive.

I find Weston whiny and a bit of a masochist. Not sure I'd like working with him.

Jeremy,
I have to agree. I am more active and wouldn't allow certain issues to linger so long if I were working with any of these individuals. There are some teachable moments in the show for sure, both good and bad.

Have you ever watched "Headcase" on Starz? It's funny!!!

Deb said...

I loved the episodes of that one girl having a crush on him, when it turned out it was mutual. :) That was interesting - too bad it's only a half hour. He's a bit tame in my opinion - he needs more interaction and opinions if you ask me. I know that psychotherapy doesn't quite involve "opinions" really. :|
