What are the 3 different ways to see self in therapies?
In therapy, self can be seen in three different ways:
The ‘self’ as a process
Some therapists view the ‘self’ as an attribute that is always continuing and always changing.
The ‘self’ as multi-dimensional
Some therapists view ‘self’ as something that consists of layers. These layers have to be harmoniously connected to each other and all of them should function well.
The ‘self’ as dialogical
‘Self’ can be seen as some psychological construct that describes the mind of the person and that is in some interaction with others.
