A Question for Psychotherapists

Deena Mezger observed, "a good question is a great gift... a good question can change your life..." All too often we avoid really important questions when they feel too difficult to answer or too threatening to face.

Mary-Jane Rust in "Creating Psychotherapy for a Sustainable Future" asks psychotherapists the following question, " how does psychotherapy need to change, theoretically and in practice, in the service of creating a sustainable future? This is complex, for it ranges from how cultural and global affairs affect and shape our internal and external worlds, to how we feel about being part of the very consumer culture which is causing this crisis, to how we conceive of, and connect with, nature, culture and the larger whole, to how our long, slow, deep process of change might contribute to the creation of sustainability, and more."
