Chapter 1 Introducing social workers to psychology assumptions. The therapist is perceived to be in control of interpreting the service-user’s problems. The classic image of the psychiatric couch can be applied to psychodynamic theory. This means that there is no equality of dialogue. As opposed to influencing the therapeutic process, the service-user is effectively disempowered by a therapist who tells ‘what should be done’ in order to resolve ‘fixated behaviour’. Malim and Birch (1998, p802) reinforce this criticism by emphasising that within psychoanalytical therapies there are problems of ‘validation’.

It was my first day at work so I wanted to make as good an impression as possible. m. m. I remember meeting one of the staff who was leaving work as I was beginning and I told him which service-users I was going to be working with. He wished me ‘good luck’ in a way that worried me because he seemed to imply that I would have a challenging introduction to residential care. m. Everything seemed OK at first. My supervisor was very experienced but said to me that if things began to get ‘out of hand’ there was a panic button at the top of the stairs.
