12 - "You won't be back" - Terminating therapy (what happens at the end of therapy)

12 - This pod we discuss ending therapy - which is referred to as 'termination' in the literature (insert your own Schwarzenegger joke here). We discuss three articles that peel back some of processes that go on when therapy ends and talk about some of the difficulties that are encountered during this time. When done properly terminating therapy can be a positive experience for both client and therapist, but it is not always easy to do. Hunter finishes up discussing whether spoilers impact on your enjoyment of stories (spoiler alert - they do and don't), and Amy searches for a definitive answer as to what a Heffalump looks like.
