JUNE 24 - 26, 2021 / WORLDWIDE
This webinar will highlight the ways we explore, conceptualize, and address Schema/Mode activation that occurs within the microcosm of the therapy relationship, with the intention of helping our patients gain insight and healing.
The therapy relationship, filled with dual activations for both patient and therapist, offers opportunities for the therapist to detect and confront the resonant experiences that others may feel when engaged with the patient. The use of transparency and self-disclosure can act as a helpful guide for our patients to sense, see, feel, and ultimately, transform self-defeating modes into healthy and adaptive ones.
In our many years of experience, we find this phenomenon is especially true when working to correct the biased emotional experiences of some of our most challenging patients, for example, those with deeply ingrained core schemas like the enmeshment/undeveloped self. This schema presents many complex issues. We will especially draw attention to the need for encouraging and fortifying personal self-expression, the use of self-disclosure and attunement, and tracking activations in the therapist-patient dynamic – ones that act as either replications of early life experiences or reactions to them. The emphasis of the work is driven by a conceptualization of the deep unmet needs embedded in experiences of a forfeited or lost self.
Through the targeted and effective use of empathy, confrontation, cultivation of the patient’s natural inclinations, and supporting autonomy, we guide our patients to eventually lead more balanced and satisfying intrapersonal and interpersonal lives.
