Message to the Japanese Association for Humanistic Psychotherapy

Dear colleagues of the Japanese Association for Humanistic Psychotherapy,

We would like to express our solidarity and profound respect to the Japanese people in face of the overwhelming tragedy brought about by the earthquake.

We feel for you and for the immense loss and devastation that swept away so many lives.

We also feel for the ongoing nuclear threat that must certainly feel frightening. At this time, we are reminded of the inter-connected nature of all life on Earth.

We would like to send our thoughts, prayers, and wishes that you and the Japanese people can find in themselves the inner resources and the strength to cope with this tragedy and the inner peace to look after each other.

We send you all - our love and unconditional support.


Response from the Japanese Association for Humanistic Psychology

Dear the World Association for Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counseling Board,

Thank you very much for your thoughtful mails regarding the recent Great East Japan Earthquake.

We still do not know the entire detail of the damage, however, we are in an unprecedented situation where our country is struck by earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power plant troubles.

In times of such situation, you have thought about us and sent us messages of encouragement which became a comfort and support for all of us.

We will try our best to overcome such tragedy despite the difficult situation.

Thank you once again for your continuous support during this trying time.

Sincerely yours,

Kazuhiko Nojima
The Chair of The Japanese Association for Humanistic Psychology
