Speak to them.: Usually, silence from a psychiatrist doesn't mean disinterest. Usually it is a specific technique to offer a patient maximum freedom to speak and to avoid directing things. It is true that some patients are very bothered by it, and some even need to change. At least, speak, and tell of your sense of disinterest.
