Reddit: Stoicism Q&A with Donald Robertson
Hi everyone, a few months ago we had a very successful Q&A session with Dr John Sellars and now we have an opportunity to interview a modern author that approaches Stoicism from a psychology point of view. Donald Robertson, the author of The Philosophy of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy has graciously agreed to answer our questions about CBT and Stoicism.
Here is how this will work. Please post your questions in this thread, then I will organize them after a few days and forward them to Donald. I will then post his answers and hopefully he will be available to answer any follow-up questions within a few days of the answers being posted.
Please be sure to check out his websites: The Philosophy of CBT website
Books: The Philosophy of CBT
(Forthcoming) Resilience–How to Survive and Thrive in Any Situation

Also, of particular interest to me is this excerpt from his book providing a Stoic Meditation script.
