Inconsistent Communication: One partner is overly communicative and expressive, while the other is reserved or even aloof.
Emotional Rollercoaster: The relationship has frequent ups and downs, oscillating between intimacy and distance.
Conflict Avoidance or Escalation: Minor disagreements often turn into significant issues because one partner avoids conflict, while the other may escalate it.
Attachment Anxiety: One partner constantly seeks validation and assurance, manifesting clingy behavior.
Emotional Unavailability: Despite being in a relationship, one partner maintains a level of emotional detachment, often avoiding deeper emotional commitments.
Perpetual Blame Game: Partners consistently blame each other for the relationship's issues, indicating an inability to take individual responsibility.
As a therapist, they might make you feel like you're walking on eggshells in the session, because it's unsafe to talk directly about feelings or the nature of their relationships.
They might express exuberance for the therapeutic process in one session, and then disappear without explanation, or behave passive aggressively in the next session.
They might minimize the insights and emotional gains they've made in therapy, and leave you feeling ineffectual and unacknowledged.
They may suck you into intellectual "tete-a-tete" scenarios, as if competing with you for control in a session by "outwitting" you, or icing you out.
They might interpret most situations in the negative, assuming more blame than is their due, so you spend a lot of session time reassuring them, instead of exploring the real underlying issues.
As a therapist, they may inspire a sense of urgency and performance anxiety, as they look to you to "fix" them with some ultimate solution.
They may assume the role of the "good client" and express "ah ha" moments and insights that they can tell you want them to have, but that they don't really feel, masking their real underlying needs.
They praise you as a therapist and seductively invite you to loosen your boundaries or adopt an air of familiarity that feels like a gray area, or borderline inappropriate.
This workshop is FREE for anyone to attend.
