Schizoid Personality Adaptation

Schizoid Personality Adaptation – To Be or Not to Be in Relationship

Online via Zoom

Facilitator

Margaret Webb, PTSTA

Who is it aimed at?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and anyone who wants to know how to understand Schizoid Adaptation.

Course Outline

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.

Learning Outcomes

  • How and why a person develops a schizoid adaptation.
  • The difficulties the person who has this adaptation experiences in terms of the schizoid dilemma.
  • The schizoid personality structure in terms of intrapsychic and interpersonal processes.
  • Treatment considerations and options when working with clients who have this adaptation.
