Repeating Thoughts


Hi Brooke,

I have a patient that I found out raped another patient of mine.

C-Rape
T-He should not have done that
F-Disappointed
A-Treat him differently
R-I can’t help him

New Model
C-Rape
T-It happened, how can I help him get the help he needs
F-Caring
A-Find resources for him
R-Help

The problem is that I keep going back to the first model. I then remind myself, it is just a thought and work on the new model. Do you have any other suggestions how to just stop thinking about the situation. I don’t want to think about it anymore as there is nothing further I can do.

Thanks,

Lisa SOM
