Internationally Recognized Psychotherapist, Theorist, Educator, and Author, Marilyn Murray, shares the backstory to how she came up with the Murray Method of treating those with mental and emotional trauma.
Dr. Marilyn Murray: But every one of them said where can I go for help? So what I did was I started to develop when I was doing my BA and my graduate program developed a theory I use, and how that affects them in all their life, and I thought that only applied to me. I didn't think that I was developing something. That would be anything for anyone else.
And it's interesting we don't have time now to go into, but what happened is it some of my professors started saying, "Could I use this with my clients"? And my own therapist had me started talk to him, and other people about it, and so I found out that this theory that I was developing actually generalized to other people.
