Altering the Relationship Field
Often it is difficult for family members to maintain a systems view of mental illness after one person is diagnosed as mentally ill. The process of staying in good contact while setting limits requires family members to alter the focus from the other to self.
Staying in good contact requires lowering anxiety. This includes technologies such as neurofeedback for family members and the “identified patient” to lower anxiety.
If one considers the family as a tightly interwoven and sensitive feedback loop, interrupting worried and reactive behavior is a first step in allowing more useful ways of relating to emerge.
The Mindful Compass:
Navigating in the Social World for Success
Interviews with ten leaders from Mexico, provides examples of the bridges built between what is learned in early family relationships, enabling leaders to accomplish their chosen missions.
All people have an internal compass but it takes time to develop the points on your Mindful Compass and to see how the compass functions under stressful conditions.
