Sample text

Beck et al. (1990) describe schemas as vulnerabilities that may be activated by certain life events. They are established early in childhood and lead to selective attention and recall of information consistent with the schema. For example, a dependent person would selectively attend to and remember information consistent with his or her schema that he or she must have the attention and support of others to survive adequately in the world. They suggest that avoidance and compensation are two coping styles people adopt to deal with these schemas.

In response, defensive behavior or resistance occurs in which experience is denied, distorted, or inadequately symbolized in order to make the experiences seem more congruent with self-organization or to block them from conscious awareness. Resistance, then, occurs as a result of a perceived threat to the consistency and integrity of the self. Gestalt Therapy Perls, Hefferline, and Goodman (1951) present an early gestalt therapy perspective on resistance. These authors conceptualized resistance as conflict within the individual that occurred outside of awareness and an avoidance that limited the individual’s contact with the self.

28 AMBIVALENCE IN PSYCHOTHERAPY Ellis proposes that therapists work with resistance as they do with any other problem in psychotherapy: by identifying and challenging the underlying irrational beliefs, and by confronting the client with the fact that he or she must change these beliefs if he or she wishes to change his or her feelings and behaviors. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Approaches The view of noncompliance as a reflection of underlying dysfunctional and distorted thinking has been elaborated and modified by many others including Davis and Hollon (1999), Goldfried and Davison (1976), Leahy (2002), Meichenbaum and Gilmore (1982), and Newman (2002).
