Two years ago I heard about a therapist who cured a complete ward of criminally
insane patients – without ever seeing any of them.
This happened at a mental hospital in Hawaii. What the psychologist would do is

I always understood “total responsibility” to mean I am responsible for what I
think and do. Beyond that, it’s out of my hands. I think most people think of total
responsibility that way. We’re responsible for what we do, not what anyone else does.

first phone call. I asked him to tell me the complete story of his work as a therapist.
He explained that he w
