Counsellors, psychotherapists and anyone who wants to know how to understand Schizoid Adaptation.
What happens to fulfilment in life when we fear what we most desire? For people who have made schizoid adaptations, reaching fulfilment in relationships they desire with other human beings becomes a life-long obsession. They want the ‘rose’ but fear the ‘thorns’. Their experiences growing up have left them with a profound conviction that intimate contact with others is fundamentally unsafe. However, at the same time the person with a schizoid adaption shrinks away from intimate contact, (s)he also craves connection with other people. This paradox defines the schizoid dilemma.
