Yesterday, I had one counseling session, a group workshop in Osaka, and preparations for tomorrow’s workshop session in Yoyogi… It seemed like I didn’t have any paper work to do, but there was a lot to do.
The workshop in Osaka was not so well attended, probably because it was Christmas night, and there were six of us in total, including Skype participants. That said, we were able to talk a lot.
Every time I go to a workshop, I am reminded of how important it is for people to talk to each other in order to recover and grow. In such a situation where values are imposed unilaterally or controlled by political correctness, it is difficult for the person involved in the problem to realize and accept his or her own emotions and values, and if you don’t know yourself, it is difficult to build good relationships with others.
When people say that the program is not effective or that it creates cunning perpetrators, it is not so much a problem of the perpetrators as it is a problem of the supporters or the support theory. If I may put it this way, it means that the supporters are just another party who controls the perpetrators with the power of authority and knowledge.
This is why I try to avoid controlling people with authority and knowledge as much as possible, and instead encourage people to talk and learn from each other as a person. As a result… I am convinced that the workshop is highly effective.
