Stress Components Redecision Therapy Redecision therapy, a less frequently known psychotherapy method, was developed by a social worker, Mary McClure Goulding, and her deceased psychiatrist husband, Robert Goulding, in the s. Parental injunctions are subtle parental verbal and nonverbal messages e.
Children respond in emotion and then form decisions holistic assessments of self in interaction e. These same decisions and assessments of life often evolve in response to later adult traumas as the following assessments of self in interaction: I am unsafe. I am in pain. I am not in control. The redecision method helps the therapist to identify these assessments of self in interaction in the present and to look for present symbols that represent these decisions and the emotion underlying them.
After the therapist can identify specific assessments of self in interaction, the therapist then asks the patient to reflect back in time when that specific assessment of self in interaction was experienced before. The therapist asks this over and over again to bring the patient back in time. After sufficient conscious age regression, the therapist then asks the patient to reflect on the many different feelings of fear, sadness, anger, guilt, etc. This helps the patient to process material that had not been completely processed previously.
After this material is reexperienced and processed, therapist guides the patient to make a new assessment of self in interaction a redecision , i. I have control, I am good enough, I am fine, I am safe, etc. People unknowingly relive their responses to prior conflict with symbols provided in the present. It is important to understand that a troubling painful relationship with another can be more upsetting to an individual than the actual abuse that had been inflicted on the patient by a particular individual.
Examples of negative assessments of self in interaction are the following: I am powerless. I am a disappointment. I am unlovable. I am not good enough. Both these components, the implicit holistic assessment of self in interaction and chronic arousal, underlie the chronic stress response that underlies symptoms that psychopharmacological therapies seek to treat. The redecision, shift from a negative to a positive assessment of self in interaction e. I have control.
I am fine. I am lovable , and acceptance of prior negative emotion and negative assessments of self in interaction reflects that processing has been completed. The individual is ready to move on. Chronic arousal and arousal associated with ongoing future conflict of similar nature will not emerge due to the separation of past and present with the conclusion of therapy.
