Thresholds have been around for a long time. Thresholds such as doorways, arches, portals, and gates, to name a few are especially important to health care specialists who cross them on a regular basis. Just how important these passage-ways might be deserves a closer look.
For instance, why do we carry a bride over the threshold? What did the Passover actually pass over? Perhaps agoraphobia might be better defined as doorphobia, and why do we constantly refer to Saint Peter’s gate and the gates of hell as so important in the grander scheme of things?
So what better a newsletter topic to examine than the threshold, especially when treatment specialists who provide various in–home services are involved? You never know, there just might be something of subtle importance that we overlook whenever we step inside or outside of whatever it is, with or without treatment strategies included on our list of therapeutic things to do. –DB
