Why do people hurt each other so much? What use is Psychotherapy? How can mindfulness help? In "The Therapy Experience", Dr Roger Kingerlee suggests that, given our tendencies to treat ourselves and others mindlessly, it may be wise for us to take a step back-even just for a moment - to reflect on how we lead our lives and, in particular, what we do to each other. Whether children, adults, or older people, all of us need psychologically respectful treatment in everyday life if we are to lead fulfilling lives. This is why people respond so well to good psychotherapy, as numerous case studies show. If, as Kingerlee believes, human mindlessness is the problem, the focused practice of human mindfulness may be the cure.
