David has a new therapist. We met her yesterday. Very abrupt lady. Just what David needs, as he hasn’t been wanting to listen and stop having negative behaviors.
David has OCD. So we talked about his stealing electronic gadgets. After she got done with his session we talked about it. According to her, he knows right from wrong. She doesn’t think the OCD has anything to do with his stealing. Why? When he stole a watch last week from Kmar sh asked him which pocket he put it in.
His response was “I put it in my back pocket.”
She asked him why.
“Because they never search my back pockets.” was his reply.
Which according to her means he is thinking about what he is doing before he is doing it. Where as if it was a compulsive behavior, he would just do it without thinking it through first.
So we see her every week.
Time will tell if she is successful in getting through to him, although he was successful at the residential facility.
