Origins Of Attachment Theory

Attachment theory is all about our instinctive need to feel secure through our attachments to things, and despite being a MASSIVE topic I thought I'd spend some time going through the basics with you. It's probably going to be quite a few episodes though I hardly scratched the surface with this one today and it's over 20 minutes long already. So I'll come back to it in next week I think too.

Ego States

Ego states are patterns of thinking, feeling and acting and is the core model of the therapy style of Transactional Analysis.
According to it's originator Eric Berne, people often interact with each other in terms of three psychological and behavioural patterns which are classified as parent, adult and child.

Episode 172: External Validation

Ever heard of The looking-glass self?
The looking-glass self is a concept created by sociologist Charles Horton Cooley back in 1902. It states that rather than a person's sense of self growing out of their own internal perceptions it instead grows out of the interactions with and the perceptions of other people.

Episode 170: Introversion

Introversion has been on my mind a lot lately as I've had quite a few clients who are introverts but don't fully understand it and think that there's something wrong with them.
