We may never be able to document fully, from session to session, how healing takes place in a patient; however, we must assume that the effectiveness of the therapist’s communication is a major factor. Patients absorb and eventually integrate into their lives outside the therapeutic setting how the therapist uses memory. Patients learn from how their therapists remember; and what their therapist remembers will activate further recollection, which in turn helps their therapist understand more aspects of his or her patient.
