Notes on Love’s Executioner

On the chapter I was told to focus on – Fat Lady.

Main thoughts:

  • He’s very good at transitioning from general discussion, to specific meetings, to personal anecdotes, to explanations of psychotherapeutic process – that’s the main strength.
  • He likes to characterise his patients with physical description, brings them to life sort of but also dehumanises them? If that makes any sense?
  • I get that he was building up to a twist and his own learning experience, but I disliked the excessive fat shaming – often the little jokes were of the “we all feel this way but don’t say it tone” which sort of lost me as an audience.
