The pioneers in our field—Freud, Jung, Perls, Satir, Minuchin, and others—all believed that to call themselves therapists they needed to go beyond technique to offer genuine insight into what it means to be human. Such insights are rooted in wisdom, and we've invited some of the wisest souls in the fields of psychology and psychotherapy today to talk to us about what it means to be wise. They'll help to identify the qualities and practices that will allow us to cultivate wisdom in our own lives and in our work.
Clients in intense states of distress—whether upset, angry, grieving, agitated, anxious, or deeply suspicious—can trigger our reactivity and make us retreat into the therapist “role.” Standard talk therapy responses—interpreting, active listening, commenting on the process—are often ineffectual or even distancing, and they can interfere with real healing.
