Merciful Love Can Help Relieve the Emotional Suffering of Extreme States

Hi All,

Here’s my article for the Journal of Humanistic Psychology Special Edition on Extreme States. In it, I draw on my personal experience of extreme states over 50 years ago, and also of attempting, as a caregiver, to compassionately be present with people in extreme states for almost 40 years.

Best wishes,

Michael

  1. This is an amazing article. I’m currently composing a short letter to a psychiatrist that treated me poorly while I was ill, and I hope it is ok for me to include a printed out copy of your article with the letter. I am doing so in the hope that this psychiatrist may learn to treat future patients better than I was treated. Thank you so much for your wonderful writing.
