We used to see a family phycologist who worked on the basis of ‘Family systems unit’. I hated it! I used to dread going, but, her theory worked. It also helped that she was a christian. 🙂
Here are my thoughts…
Its helpful to remember that the degree in which a person relies on relationships to steady themselves can be connected to their levels of maturity and may play a part in their vulnerability & mood symptoms. If a person depends on others to calm things down when they are fearful, they are likely to struggle to draw on the internal resources to stay on track in the face of future challenges.
