Example text

The focus returned to the idea of her not being playful and she agreed she wasn’t. The therapists struggled a bit to engage the couple with the junior therapist making particular bids to Kate, but Kate remained polite and distant. The goal of session 1 was to produce a contract that specified a problem and defined the period of treatment. Playfulness, with the underlying idea of Kate becoming more emotionally open, became the focus and ten sessions were defined. The family left with the assignment to find free moments when work and household chores could be set aside and they could play in a light-hearted way.

Discomfort, increased arousal, high muscle tone and pain are some of the somatic representations of danger. These can be ways of knowing (unconsciously or pre-consciously) or communicating (directly, non-verbally) about danger. The changes in somatic information about danger towards comfort, lower arousal, relaxation or pleasure represent safety. Somatic DRs reflect the immediate state of the self. Cognitive information: Represents sequences of events, that is, the temporal order of events, that lead to predictable outcomes, particularly dangerous or safe outcomes.
