JUNE 24 - 26, 2021 / WORLDWIDE
Chelsea Wakefield, PhD, outlines a relationship roadmap using schema therapy for couples (ST-C), explaining that we don’t “find” great partners, we “become” them when we do the inner healing work to remap early maladaptive schemas and dysfunctional modes that interfere with establishing and sustaining a meaningful love relationship. She invites couples to examine how their “inner cast of characters,” our modes, are relating in rewarding and troublesome ways.
Regarding communication, Chelsea asks “who” is communicating and “who” is listening, outlining six essential “love capacities” that our Healthy Adult mode can develop that will put us on a path toward meaningful, enduring relationships.
