Con't. Therefore, to work in the present with skill building, so that the client experiences positive changes is important. Then linking difficulties to the past is the skill of the therapist; "why and when did you get the feeling you were less than..." This is the key to break through the resistance to hurt, get to the buried wound, let it out, so that THE understanding is the closure on the defeating pattern. Everyone has a blindspot, not an accidental blindspot. A well fashioned, consistent blinder that never exposes the truth. Unassisted, it would be hard and painful to remove.
