Dr. Kalman Kaplan, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry, and Co-Author of A Psychology of Hope: A Biblical Response to Tragedy and Suicide talks about the crisis of purposelessness with Dr. Michael Laitman.

Here’s an extract from the conversation:

Dr. Kalman Kaplan: If you’re disconnected from what you do, nothing gives you pleasure. When you’re involved in what you do, the smallest thing will give you pleasure. If you’re behind what you do, life has a purpose. You don’t have enough time to do everything you want to do.

Dr. Michael Laitman: But I think that in the end, the solution [ed. to the crisis of purposelessness] is in human relations. If the general atmosphere were positive, it would affect each of us and would give us a sensation of life, warmth, strength, and energy to live. It all depends on this black cloud that’s coming down on the world. And this is a problem. If we strengthen our good relations, we will certainly not see such incidents as suicide, depression, and all that.

Thank you Dr.Kaplan and Dr.Laitman for this wonderful talk, I think that using psychological tools together with the insight and spirit of Kabbalah can help many people in the world today!

I hope to see many collaborations in the future between kabbalists and psychologists!
