What is Redecision Therapy?

Redecision Therapy was developed in 1965 by Bob and Mary Goulding. It is a combination of Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Therapy and Gestalt Therapy. This process is a powerful way of resolving family of origin issues, as well as internal conflicts. It is ideal for both short and long-term therapy.

 

As children grow up, they are given positive and negative messages by their caretakers and society. Based on these messages, they make decisions about themselves and others that will direct them throughout their lives. These decisions were necessary for children to survive in their families; but as adults, these negative decisions are no longer useful and become hindrances to getting what they want. In fact, they are at the root of self-defeating patterns in their lives.

 
Adults pick friends, jobs and romantic partners who replicate their childhood struggles and support the decisions they made.

 

One of the tenets of Redecision Therapy is that a self-enhancing redecision can only be made when a client is experiencing the same intensity of thought, feeling and behavior that was present when the original decision was made. Traditional psychotherapeutic techniques often provide tremendous insight for clients but fail to achieve significant behavioral change, because the emotional intensity does not match the earlier decision. As clients are re-experiencing the original pain, they are supported by the Redecision Therapist to redecide.
