I Have Always Depended on the Kindness of Strangers: Kindness in Psychotherapy
Kindness is rarely written or spoken about by psychotherapists. Of course therapy cannot consist only of kindness. But without kindness therapy is missing something vital. In this presentation, we will talk about the essence of kindness and how it is different from empathy, being helpful, and other concepts in psychotherapy which we are more comfortable with. We will focus on the experience of giving and receiving kindness, how this functions in therapy, and why both therapists and clients may be wary of this experience. Using many clinical examples, we will explore why some clients elicit kindness and some do not; how much kindness is too much; and whether or not therapists should accept kindness from their clients.
