What is the significance of an I-thou mode of therapy?
The I-Thou relationship emphasizes the importance of ‘encounter‘, or the process of interacting with the environment, including other people. It emphasizes that by treating others with respect and genuine care and not merely as objects, we can discover our authentic self. After all, according to Martin Buber, “All actual life is encountered” and “All real living is meeting”.
