Because they're better than you.

you are wasting your time with a shrink , its better to talk to a friend or family member about your problems , take the money you save and take your friend or family member out for dinner

My moms a mental health counselor and she has the largest laugh I know of. It's Famous/imfamous where I live.

umm will idk my therapist laughs when i tell her something funny she laughts maybe your metal health professionals are too serious

Sometimes they do...it depends on the situation, the subject matter, the appropriateness of the laughter.....otherwise, remaining neutral is the most appropriate response. Laughing can sometimes be misinterpreted, so it's use with caution. kjl

coz dey got no sense of humourr

It depends on what you're laughing at. Some people don't take their problems seriously, which is a sign of denial and they don't want to encourage that. Or they don't want to make you feel like your problems aren't important. A lot of people feel guilty for seeking help because they think they are "whining" or other people have it worse, so if your psychologist or psychiatrist laughed they may be doing more harm than good.

They like you. Otherwise they'd just sit there quite scribbling away.

The don't laugh when you laugh because they are too busy trying to figure out why you are laughing?

They always seem like they're not really involved in the conversation. They don't respond to much, actually...they just write down a few notes about how the person is acting.

...And sometimes act snobbish, but I guess that comes with the job.

well if you are their patient they definately wouldnt want it to appear that they are laughing at you.

probably because they've heard it all and you might not be funny. i don't mean that in a bad way, but just because you find something funny, doesn't mean that it is funny...just to you. also, laughing is sometimes JUST a sign of nervousness.

hey, this is one of the most interresting questions I've come across so far! You know, I was wondering sometimes why I laugh (and don't find it funny later)? isn't laughing a defense mechanism? biologically, it's almost indistinctable from behavior such as crying (did you ever see "them" cry with you?)?

it realy is a defense mechanism... trust me on this... I've stand there and watched young mother's and father's cry over their just died baby... and all I could do... was nothing. But it hits a few days, weeks, months and sometimes years later. It doesn't mean that one doesn't feel anything, it's just a poor attempt of not being human...

they won't laugh cause they have to play the good guy cause some people laugh when they deal with stress (i do this). I laughed at my teacher once and made him laugh when he was teaching so laughing usually is contagious

Because they're analysing and judging every single tiny thing you do so they can give you some kind of diagnosis because all most people want is a label for their neuroses right? hehe

Either that or you're laughing at some seriously weird stuff

My doctor, who is an internist, laughs with me, about me and some of my weird questions, and is the most human health professional I have ever met. Takes forever to get an appt. with him, but he's worth the wait. Everyone loves him. His name is Frank Karneges.

mimi x.
i dont know haha but it annoys me.
ill make a fantastic joke and my therapist will be like
"......so how does that make you feel?"

i would say that they have to remain objective in order to help you. if they laugh or cry they are becoming emotionally involved and this hinders their ability to do their job.....now that that is out of the way.................WHEW!....you feel that something was missed when this person or people didn't or won't laugh with you....you are most certainly RIGHT! if people would just let their guard down a little sometimes, there would be a lot less need for mental health professionals around .....hmmm...maybe it's a money thing.
