No Body... No Mind...

Hodges' model: an open conceptual space for the naive beginner and expert alike...

humanistic --------------------------------------- mechanistic
NO BODY...!?NO MIND...!?

"I also find it helpful to be both expert and naive. Following Shunryu Suzuki’s saying, “in the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few,” I find it helpful to approach each client with an attitude of “we don’t really know anything about this, let’s explore it together.” On the other hand, clients expect (and have a right to expect) some level of expertise and the fact as clinicians is we do have a body of knowledge which is valuable. By being both “expert and naive,” simultaneously teacher and student, we can model a kind of being-with-a-problem, which is most paradoxical but most essential: I (and you) are both healthy and ill, distressed and just fine." p.23.
