Walking Therapy Session

Jan 07, 2023

Hi, this is Dave Kats with Therapist Consultants and I have a tip for you. You know what? You have to really think outside the box for this one. This one isn't for everybody. It's for 1 in 50 of you, but it's fun, so let's talk about it.

I saw an article the other day-- actually, it was a couple of years ago, about a therapist who lives in a area that has good weather most of the time, and she does a unique thing. Instead of sitting on the couch or sitting in the easy chair and doing her therapy, she often goes on walks with her clients to do their therapy. She finds that they open up more when they're outside, that they're more relaxed, that if it isn't an enclosed atmosphere and people aren't around listening, they'll share a lot more, and I think that's a great idea.

You don't have to do it all the time, but I would tell people in the beginning, if there's good weather and things like that, we'll walk outside and we'll talk a little bit, and I think you would have a lot more fun as a therapist. I think you would accomplish a lot more and I think the patients would appreciate it. Think outside the box. It's not for everybody, maybe 1 in 50, but you should think about doing it. This is Dave Kats. Thanks for listening.
