There are many other forms of encouragement which involve literally giving people the courage to do things which involve disintegration, but which are made to appear in a good light, and so to be respected. Not all encouragement consists of telling people what they should do, what would be good for them to do, what will benefit them, etc. Many forms of encouragement entail no verbal statements, and no written statements. Encouragement may occur through example, body language, presence, and other tacit communications. Encouragement may occur by the absence of statements and/or behavior which might be properly discouraging. It is dangerous to have too narrow a conception of what may constitute encouragement; for with too narrow a conception we may not recognize instances of disintegrative encouragement which may undermine our personal and communal integrity. All addictive and codependent processes grow through such disintegrative encouragement; from addiction to drugs, to addiction to scientific research and technology. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
