Reality vs. Realities 

Realizing there can be more than one version of reality is probably the best thing that ever happened in my journey as a clinician. That realization allowed me to look at clients as individuals and help meet them where they were at with THEIR goals instead of trying to “fix” them and teach them “the truth.” 

Are hallucinations a symptom? 
Yes. 
Are they also a part of some people’s reality? 
Yes. 

It is naive to deny psychosis, delusions, symptoms of personality disorders, etc AREN’T a part of day to day life. 

Ultimately I found if you treat the person as a person and let them personalize their treatment plan, you should be good to go!
