    A great session...especially the last half which connected the clinical situation so powerfully to the brain theory and research.

    I would love to see you Rich, do a series connecting the dots. Much of what Dan Siegel describes echoes/mirrors/reverberates with my psychodynamic training of the sixties and seventies...the power of relationship, transference/countertransference/ early experience as an important area to explore, the power of the here and now. I would love you to do another series with the old sages and the new sages and connect their wisdom.

    Also, I would love to use this description of the power of the relationship and its connectioon to the mind with my students who are studying to be counselors.. So much of what they learn now is 'solution-focused' and 'anti-hitorical symptom treatment. It seems we have regressed and the lastest in interpersonal neurobiology may lead us back to the right path. Which videos on his website (that I can share with students) best describe this theory most economically, i.e. concentrating on the clinical area especially.

    Thank you for this series.

    Thank you Mary Jo for your webinar on ethics which I am taking especially now because I am preparing to teach an Ethics course in Israel in the Fall.

    I am heartened and enlightened by how your approach is one of 'Ego' rather than 'Superego'. The latter approach seems to pervade how much of ethics is taught in the field.

    I am taken by how you address these issues through the notion that ethics should merely be an extension of what psychotherapy is and should be, and that psychotherapy is merely and extension of what day to day respectful relationship should be.

    If you have any specific suggestions about teaching this material in Israel, I would love to hear them.
