Healing, and the “Urgency Bully”

I have found that the direction for counseling on physical injuries, as Harvey* said, must always be toward complete recovery. I am also finding that there can be a sense of urgency about recovery, as in “Why won't this heal faster? I have things that I want to do!” With this distress recording, I have taken the position “We will commit to paying gentle, loving, patient attention to your _____ until it is completely healed.” That has seemed to bring a nice amount of discharge, as I stand up to the bully that urgency can be.
