Love as Dialogue: A Conversation with Ili Walter

As Buber noted, we don’t know what will emerge when we engage in dialogue. We stand open to the mystery. between persons. Ili Walter was surprised in what emerged between her and her parents. A few years later, she decided to explore this “happening” in her doctoral study. Here she talks with me about love, courage and seeing the humanity of the other.

Ili Walter, Ph.D., LMFT is an Assistant Professor of MFT at Nyack College in NYC. You can find her website at and join The Refreshed Therapist Network.
