“From what you see to what you need – towards an Interpersonal Schema Therapy”
Keynote by Eckhard Roediger
Modes are basically regarded as what we see. But behind the executed behaviour there is a layer of internal motivational processes. While more emotionally instable patients express their mode activations quite directly, people with more prefrontal control might perceive modes as internal activations that not necessarily are acted out visibly. Especially when looking at interpersonal relationships including these “backstage” activations into an extended Schema-Mode Model helps understanding Mode clashes by referring to basic emotions caused by unfulfilled core needs. Expressing core needs in a balanced way guided by our Healthy Adult modes helps resolving interpersonal conflicts.
