Rechilding, deconfusion and redecision: What’s the difference?
Some might say that a distinguishing feature of a psychotherapist is the capacity to work with someone beyond insight and clarification to offer psychotherapy and change at depth, in realms of the personality that are less easily verbalised or consciously known.
Petruska Clarkson and Sue Fish made an addition to TA theory in offering Rechilding as an important stage of psychotherapy and change. ‘Rechilding’ describes the process of creating new Child ego states that are congruent with the developmental stages where a person experienced distress or misattunement. It is a different technique to Deconfusion of Child ego states, and of Redecision within Child ego states. All three are important aspects of the work of psychotherapy.
This workshop will offer a brief tour through the theory that distinguishes these concepts, and offer guidance on techniques a practitioner may use. It will be enriched by a created case example based on my work in private practice.
