I accept that it went horrendously badly whilst the two observers were in the room, but I was asking a very tough conceptual question based on Fluxus art and Dadaism: why is it important to constantly change our perceptions of the world we live in? I tried all manners of questioning techniques to elicit responses about learning from the previous lesson, but they struggled. The students were then asked to invent a meaning for a strange piece of Fluxus art to the group, but they simply began describing what it looked like, so I was challenging them to think ‘out of the box’ and act like the dadaists did (off-the-wall) But they didn’t ‘get it.’
At PCH Treatment Center, we have a highly experienced clinical team that specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders . When a client is admitted, they are assessed and followed by one of our psychiatrists. When we find that our client is on a benzodiazepine, in the majority of cases we recommend that they discontinue the drug. We carefully explain to them the reasons that we want them to taper off the medication under medical supervision and that there are alternatives to benzodiazepine for their anxiety available. We find that this class of medication is counterproductive to our treatment goals and to the health and well-being of our clients.
