“This Is Not a Day Care, It’s a University!” Dr. Piper’s article created a myriad of “love” or “hate” reactions, not just from university students but the whole world over. There is a similar misconception about psychotherapy as well. “Discomfort” may just be a necessary “devil”. If facing emotional truths is more important for us than “comfort”, that is.
