Why ‚ÄúStabilizing‚ÄĚ People is Entirely the Wrong Idea

If human beings were meant to be entirely stable entities, then ‚Äústabilizing‚ÄĚ them would be an entirely good thing; a target for mental health treatment that all could agree on. But it‚Äôs way more complex than that: healthy humans are constantly moving and changing. They have a complex mix of stability and instability that is hard to pin down. All this relates to one of my favorite subjects, the intersection of creativity and madness.
