EMPATHIC CONFRONTATION

by Friederike Vogel & Neele Reiss

Maladaptive coping modes such as Detached Protector or Self-Aggrandizer Mode are the cause of major difficulties in treating patients with various personality disorders. Rigid behavior patterns associated with these modes significantly influence other people’s, even therapist’s, reactions, often triggering them to behave in ways that reinforce the patient’s maladaptive schemas.

Being specifically tailored towards changing maladaptive coping modes, empathic confrontation is a therapeutic intervention in Schema Therapy that is part of limited reparenting and at the same time a mode change strategy in its own right. Empathic confrontation can be defined as the therapist’s approach to addressing maladaptive coping modes and associated behaviors, with empathy for how they developed biographically, balanced by confronting these modes and behaviors as needing to change for the patient to have a healthy life. It is a critical and difficult intervention for accomplishing the overall goal of Schema Therapy- to help patients get their adult needs met in a healthy manner – as it points out the negative effects of their currently used unhealthy mode driven behaviors and assists them in learning and using more adaptive behaviors.

Empathic confrontation is based on the principle of limited reparenting: the strong connection between therapist and patient, in which the therapist repeatedly shows the patient that he or she has the patient’s best interest at heart and has good intentions when confronting maladaptive coping mode behaviors.

After this workshop participants can:

  • Participants are able to distinguish maladaptive Coping Modes from other modes.
  • Participants can learn about the steps of empathic confrontation for maladaptive Coping Modes.
  • Understanding of suicidal ideation and its connection to Coping Modes.
  • Development of an awareness towards one’s own maladaptive reactions to our patient’s Coping Modes.
