I love a good procedural cop show. There’s a whole lot to glean from a Law & Order marathon—including valuable lessons like, “Don’t let your emotions overrule critical thinking,” and “Most New York district attorneys are former super models.” (I’m not sure I can confirm the latter.) But the advice that’s perhaps most relevant to my life is, “Recognize when you’re in over your head, and don’t be afraid to call in backup.” It’s something that many of us learn the hard way, but having a reliable ally to back you up can be invaluable when you feel snowed under. And if you’re a rehab therapist, you should look no further than your therapist assistant.
