The Option Attitude/Functional Unhappiness

In this talk, Bruce Di Marsico talks about the foundation of the Option Method: the Option Attitude.

The Option Attitude includes knowing that the client is always right, that your knowing why the client is unhappy does the client no good, even if you’re right, and that the Option practitioner is not here to make somebody be happy who doesn’t think it’s a good idea.

A dialogue on “Functional Unhappiness” is included. Functional Unhappiness is pretending to be unhappy because it is a social norm in a given situation, and then starting to forget that you are pretending!
