One activity that is characteristic of all approaches to counseling and psychotherapy is the effort to understanding of client’s world. However, this quest for understanding and empathy is not an easy one. Human being are forever separated from each other by various physical and psychological barriers. Differences in age, sex, ethnic memberships, socio-economic background, religious beliefs, political persuasions, and personal history make each human life unique and, to some extent, an inevitable mystery to every other human being. Personal counselor face the formidable task of attempting to bridge these many barriers in order to understand, empathize, and intervene in another human life.
