Though heavily defended, personal identity is contextually reframable. This paradox is utilized for treating otherwise resistant and regressive post-traumatic and personality disorders. Patients are respectfully challenged to define who they are, what they stand for and where they’re heading. This methodology proves effective, cost efficient and safe.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the functions and context dependency of personal identity.
  2. To describe two ways to circumvent common pitfalls in treating "difficult," high-risk patients.
