|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Fred Rogers talks with psychologist Tom Cottle about open honesty and being present in the moment.
Dr. Cottle shares about his life and career as footage is shared of him working closely with young people in an urban setting.
Fred Rogers concludes: "There's real courage in risking to be yourself and allowing the people you're with to be themselves, too. Not everyone's as courageous as Tom Cottle. A good conversation, like a good friendship, is an encounter between two people who have a true interest in each other. It sounds simple, but it's not. Like love, it can not be taught or measured. It can only be experienced. That must be what makes it so precious."
