You can’t do it alone. No matter how much insight you may gain from reading the Lectures, we have found that a partnership with another person who can help you see your faults and your beauty is essential. That person is the Pathwork Helper. While we all support each other in process groups, the helper-worker relationship is a one-on-one partnership.

Pathwork helpers may or may not be trained therapists. Mental illness is often characterized by a refusal or inability to take responsibility for one’s life — for routine functioning as a productive person.
