At our Airbnb home-away-from-home in NYC, I noticed this on a signed photograph:
It says, “Bravo! Great voice!”
In the groups I observed and participated in yesterday (at the Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society annual conference), I heard variations of “Bravo!” when people were brave, authentic, went beneath the surface, and gave great voice to their thoughts and feelings.
What helped people do all this in those groups? Perhaps it was this clear message (which I saw at the church where the conference took place):
“You are safe here.”
Do any of my other photos from yesterday deserve a “Bravo!” ?
Here‘s the Goedicke Concert Etude, played by Julia Bravo:
Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — Bravo! — to YOU.
