& is this lady in for a reality check. Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist for kt called me earlier this week to reschedule kt's appointment this week. I updated her on kt's suicidal ideation & recent behaviors, etc. Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist didn't care for my response to kt's announcement on committing suicide through anorexia. Or the fact that I let her choke herself with her own hands, figuring if she did it long enough she'd pass out (I'd have been more concerned if she had a belt or some other tool around her neck). This was all with mental health CM's blessing. I was "interrogated" for lack of a better word, on why I didn't call 911 (not a serious attempt), what happened with crisis team (showed up after all was said & done), what did mental health CM do (he showed up as well & assessed the situation - no need to seek further help) & why was I so calm about a threat of suicide? Well, if you have it thrown in your face as the solution to all your problems on a regular basis it becomes a weak & diluted comment to me. I take it all very seriously & watch kt closely yet kt has gotten very saavy & knows how to push buttons. Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist needs her eyes opened & quickly. I tell any new team member you'd better be ready to hit the ground running. Read all the hx & other reports on hand. My difficult children are world class charmers; know how to work the "poor orphan" tale & are very stuck in very reactive, maladaptive coping skills. Yup, Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist will have to catch up quick around here. There's never enough time between crisis's & other antics to fill Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist in on every little detail- I hope she catches on quickly.
