SEGMENT 6: 3.00 - 3.30
Enmeshment and the Undeveloped Self Schema and the Impact on Relationships:
Clarifying the Blurred Lines Between Self and Other
with Jeff Conway
We will consider some possible ways the Enmeshment Schema contributes to what we often describe as an Anxious Attachment or an Avoidant Attachment Style. This webinar posits that for a person who has a prominent Enmeshment Schema, the possibility of creating a closer bond based on understanding and a respect for differences is undermined by a tendency toward boundary confusion and a diminished sense of personal agency, both of which are fueled by this Schema. It is this emotional and cognitive experience that can cloud and obscure the rich opportunities available in a primary relationship. We will also consider how to talk about this Schema with our patients and ways to facilitate a shift towards a deeper attunement of self and other and a fostering of interpersonal autonomy which are essential ingredients for the development of a satisfying and secure bond.
