  • “There is no such thing as a disturbed child who does not come from a disturbed mother, father, family, or all three.”
  • “The chief reason for marriage failure is not knowing what marriage is.”
  • “A great number of distressed patients are being tormented by somebody else.”
  • “So often the wrong patient gets sent to therapy.”
  • “The human mind cannot be understood by humans; the Holy Spirit must be called upon.”
  • “When both outcomes are bad in an “either-or” choice, a the “crazy third door” is often needed.”
  • “What does a child do if a parent says you can go swimming but don’t get wet?”
  • “Abuse is the strongest form of communication. Its message is permanent.”
