A key issue in brief therapy involves clients’ regression into survival strategies. Survival strategies are activated by a perceived threat to our physical or psychological survival, and include: fight (attack), flight (escape), freeze (paralysis) or surrender (submit). Updating survival strategies involves reviewing key life situations and bringing new resources into these experiences at several levels.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Define and illustrate the role of survival strategies in the process of psychotherapy.
  2. Present a model and method for transforming survival strategies into a more generative approach to dealing with threatening situations. 
  3. List the survival strategies that can’t be successfully transformed and what new resources can be utilized in experiences.
