Chaos and Compassion.
Gelatt, H. B.
Counseling and Values, v39 n2 p108-16 Jan 1995
Before chaos theory, Western society had no "scientific" tools to deal with disorder and unpredictability because science relied on factual evidence. With chaos theory, knowing and believing are now seen as interconnected and both are considered authentic. Counseling should reflect this authenticity with compassion, not control. (LKS)
