After dealing with major depression for almost 20 years, I was initially very skeptical about the two handed writing session and the possibility of getting any relief. But since I was so uncomfortable and had not found anything else that seemed to work, I gave it a try. I was surprised to find that it was difficult – not just the effort trying to write legibly with my left hand, but that it caused me to recognize that were many more parts to me than I had been willing to recognize, and that they had VALUE. The insight that I gained from the exercise, which continued over the next several years has given me extraordinary benefit – much, much more than the previous fifteen years of traditional therapy. This technique broke through the logjam that had me stuck, and has allowed me to learn how to cope with life’s tribulations and actually live , and not just exist as I had been doing for my entire adult life.
