Working with Parent/Critic Modes of Challenging Patients with the Healthy Army

by Sergio Alejandro Morales Hernández


Working with severe personality disorders or addictive disorders can be very challenging. Combating their parent / critic modes can be difficult because they were developed through the traumatic experiences and reinforced by their toxic environment.

In this Skill Class we will practice different strategies to combat these parent /critic modes, with a healthy army (limited reparenting), that includes the therapist, a network of emotional "helpers", if is necessary. And through drawings and writing to weaken the parental mode by showing that it is not stronger than our client.

  • These strategies will help to your clients to combat with the parent / critic modes.
  • The clients will understand the mode cycle in the life problems.
  • The client will be reparenting all the time to strength the healthy adult.
  • The client will be understand more the origins and the way to stop the toxic messages.
