Why we might want to call “therapy” emotional literacy
I’ve seen an ad on YouTube today advertising the usefulness of “therapy”.
At times, I wonder if it’s more helpful to call therapy “emotional literacy” because emotional literacy is beneficial for all, and not just for those with a mental illness.
It may reduce stigma and make “therapy” more psychologically accessible for all. It may even make its way into schools in more significant ways perhaps.
