A Closer Look at Addressing Enmeshment & Undeveloped Self
by Jeff Conway
The intention of this workshop is to highlight the Schema Enmeshment & Undeveloped Self, that is sometimes overlooked with a number of more challenging patients. It is hoped that after this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of how this Schema is most commonly developed and why this Schema should be more thoroughly considered and addressed. It is also hoped that participants will gain a mode conceptualization that is common for someone with this Schema. Finally, it is hoped that participants come away with a clearer treatment approach through targeted CBT and emotion-focused strategies as well as leveraging the therapeutic relationship.
The 2 broad objectives of this workshop are as follows:
1. To provide the origins, complexities, and most common Modes of patients with Enmeshment/Undeveloped Self.
2. To explore the challenges in the treatment room and most effective ST approaches for healing enmeshment and developing "selfness."
This workshop is intended for:
