Effective Therapy: A Major Force in Enhancing Moral Development
By John Bradshaw, MA MSP, THA, MSP, THA
In this cutting-edge lecture, John Bradshaw, MA brings forth a strong case for the role of therapy in forming moral intelligence. In his latest book, Reclaiming Virtue, John draws the conclusion that humans possess a unique innate moral intelligence — defined as “right practical reasoning in making good choices.” John argues that this ability to choose well is marred by addictions and emotional illness. Focusing on the critical part played by emotion and volition in making mature choices, he offers specific ways in which effective therapy can invigorate and restore one’s moral intelligence in this Featured Course. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
