Therapy and the lightbulb

1
How many psychotherapists does it take to change a lightbulb?
Only one, but the lightbulb has to want to change.

2
How many group therapists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. Group therapy doesn’t change anything.

3
How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
One, provided the lightbulb is fully compliant with all components of treatment. Otherwise, it’s the lightbulb’s fault that it doesn’t get changed.

4
How many clinical psychologists does it take to change a lightbulb?
Well, they’ll be able to change it quickly and efficiently, once they’ve figured out the correct DSM-V diagnosis. Until then, how do we know it needs changing?
(The DSM is the diagnostic ‘bible’ of the American Psychiatric Association)

5
How many depressed psych patients does it take to change a lightbulb?
Who cares?
