Psychotherapy's Duty to the Wider World

Reflections on the Challenges and Rewards of Volunteer Work

Jeffrey Kottler • 9/1/2016

By Jeffrey Kottler - Who has time to change the world when we already have our hands full trying to make a living and get through the obstacle course of a normal work week? It's not impossible. I now spend several months each year working in remote regions of Nepal, helping lower-caste girls, who are at the greatest risk of being forced into early marriage or trafficked into sex slavery. It's when I'm here that I feel most alive, and at least for the few months after I return, I feel a new clarity and focus about what's most important.

It's when I'm here that I feel most alive, and at least for the few months after I return, I feel a new clarity and focus about what's most important.
