ESTABUSHING COMPANIONSHIP When we walk through a typical "program" for children, the homeless, those with mental retardation, the mentally ill, the aged, or any other marginalized group, what do we so often see? Loneliness and isolation often reign. Feelings of condescending friendliness are reserved for "recreation" programs, special social events, and assembly line learning or working. Silence prevails and heads are bowed in compliance. Yet in other settings smiles can be seen, affectionate sounds can be heard, and solidarity can be felt.

We are not only helping others but ourselves as well. To bring this new reality to fruition, we need to put three basic elements into practice: the establishment of feelings of safety and security, the goodness of human engagement, and the central role of unconditional valuing. These are the seedlings of this ongoing mutual change process. Chapter 2 UNCONDITIONAL VALUING Our challenge is to enable ourselves and others to enter a culture of life, a process that increasingly brings meaning to the human condition, instills hope, and establishes a process toward companionship.

This option will bring life where emotional death has reigned. We are enculturated in domination from our earliest years. We learn that it is better to be the best, to compete and step over those in our path, and to pursue self-reliance as if it were the ultimate good. Professionals come from schools that produce behavioral change experts entrenched in a materialistic view of the human condition and trained to efficiently and effectively modifY behaviors. Rules and regulations are written with behaviorism and behavioral practices as basic assumptions.
