Ethical sensibility initially develops from emotional needs rather than a proper intentional thought. To explain this hypothesis, common to different approaches, we are going to consider it by taking into account two opposite feelings: compassion and outrage. Therapists face a process, which begins with rage and consequent outrage that leads them to the healing process; this process helps them to take a position on knowledge of what is right or wrong. Compassion favors presence and mutual solidarity at first, but subsequently, it contributes to developing a more cognitive process of theoretical organization or rational meditation of desirable values. These emotional and physical responses are observed from psychotherapeutic practice, seen as a relationship, which aims to open up to the idea of hope.
