Arno Gruen

"In order to deal with a deficit in a patient's feelings, therapists must first realize the person before them is completely incapable of feeling. To bring such people back to what they rejected about themselves so long ago means to accompany them on a journey of self -confrontation so painful that suicide, and outbreak of psychosis, or some other dire result may ensue. Any other approach is empty talk with which therapists seek to conceal their own helplessness." (1)
