Yvonne S: That's exciting. I really look forward to hearing about that. I am trying to do some work in that area myself currently. Alice P: Completely agree. Indeed for what its worth I think critical thinking is a cornerstone of any progressive educational process. Judy: I think we need to radicalise what we think education and supervision is personally. Anonymous at the top: Good luck. Yes but:Two things; firstly I believe training is different to education. Secondly if people cannot become more patient, or kinder or more generous doesn't that mean growing up or old is just a decline into misanthropic bitterness? I don't think you or I believe that do we? I think our challenge is to find effective and workable ways to help people hold on to or grow the best of themselves - because our patients benefit from those qualities.
