Jordan Peterson—not really a therapist at all

Salon published an opinion piece looking at Jordan Peterson apparently working as a therapist. The result wasn’t pretty.

He doesn’t strike me as a “therapist “ at all. He isn’t addressing the other person’s existential situation, except to reinforce maladaptive thoughts (and likely related behaviors) about the world. Not clear how the interchange will be helpful.

Peterson is functioning from a narcissistic stance. He is sharing his own narcissistic injury and animosity toward women with the patient with no “growth” or “change” narrative or suggestions. Bah!
