Thomas Moore talks about his most recent book Soul Therapy, a book for both professionals and ordinary people as they assist friends and family members.
How do you prepare and care for yourself in this work? Can a non-professional help even if he or she is not "qualified"? How do you deal with complexes and how do you honor symptoms and yet be free of their hold on you? Can you be a friend to a client or someone you are helping and what are the issues involved? How close can you get to someone you are helping?
In plain English, what are transference and counter-transference and does it help to understand them? How do you build a vessel or good container for helpful conversations and how important is it to keep secret the information you get?
Thomas Moore is the author of Care of the Soul and twenty-five other books on living a deeper, more genuine life. He has a Ph.D. from Syracuse University and has been a psychotherapist for forty years.
