Moore recommends reflection on motivations

Join the discussion at The Huffington Post about Thomas Moore’s new blog post, "Everyone Should Be in Therapy" posted yesterday. Moore writes:
"I'd like to see doctors spend some time in therapy before practicing medicine. The same goes for lawyers, media personalities, business leaders and, of course, politicians. Imagine if our leaders had sorted out the main issues that make them neurotic on the job.

Many of our social problems are not as literal as the participants and media coverage would have us believe. Many of our leaders are clearly banging at windmills of their own when they make public decisions. We all act out our anxieties and past conflicts in our current affairs. But we have almost no opportunity for reflection."
Readers respond with their own experiences and alternative suggestions for mental health.
