Voices About Relationships

Robert Firestone, PhD
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
What prevents most people from being able to sustain romantic, meaningful relationships that satisfy their needs and desires? In this film, actual group participants identify negative thoughts or voices toward themselves and others that seriously impair their capacity for intimate relating. Dr. Robert Firestone helps them identify and understand this negative thought process, and challenge the self-defeating behavior patterns through the powerful technique of Voice Therapy. Voice Therapy quickly taps into clients' core negative beliefs and combines insight with deep affect in a way that profoundly shifts clients' point of view toward self and others to a more compassionate and realistic perspective. By verbalizing their negative thoughts in the second person, clients are able to separate themselves from their harsh and hostile inner voices. Through the use of this technique and further collaboration with the therapist on resisting destructive acting out and increasing positive behavior, clients gain greater levels of intimacy in their relationships, experience a lift in their depression, and resist relapse into self-defeating behaviors. Keywords: voices, relationships, Robert, Firestone, Robert Firestone, Lisa, child, childhood, trauma, voice, technique, psychotherapist, counselor, psychology, psychologist, Counseling, counselling, Social Work, Social Worker, Therapy, Psychotherapy, Psychotherapy.net, Therapist.--Supplied by publisher.
