When You've Lost Your Self in Someone Else
A revised edition of the best-selling solution-oriented guide to identifying and healing over-involvement or "entanglement" in relationships
Anyone who has struggled with balancing his or her own needs and desires with those of another person will benefit from Nancy Johnston's sensible, easy-to-follow method for changing the course of relationships. Disentangle combines psychoeducation, personal anecdotes, clinical case vignettes, and skills-building exercises.
Johnston describes how to turn this cycle around with self-assessments and experiential exercises designed to address essential aspects of self-awareness, distortions in thinking, communication style and tools, and spirituality.
Disentangling is the process of creating enough emotional space between oneself and the other person in order to better see the reality of the relationship and make healthier conscious decisions about it.
