"Keep the Lines of Communication Open with One Another"

Howe, Reuel L.
May 1955
New Republic;5/16/55, Vol. 132 Issue 20, p22
The article presents the author's comments on the paper "Keep the Lines of Communication Open With One Another." The author says that sometimes inter-professional dialogue seems to suggest that there are different and unrelated truths including theological truth, psychotherapeutic truth, political truth. There are important differences and disagreements. If these are ignored and the pretense made that they do not matter both psychotherapists and the theologians would rightly take defensive positions. While it is true that both stress the importance of relationship, there is a great difference between the understanding of the psychotherapist and that of the theologian as to the nature and dimension of relationship.
