Session 1: The Rebuilding Blocks
The rebuilding blocks give you an overview of the adjustment process used in the sessions to help you make your crisis into a creative experience.
Session 2: Adaptation
But it worked when I was a kid!
You may have learned and developed adaptive behaviour during your formative years in order to have your needs met.
This adaptive behaviour may become maladaptive in your adult relationships.
You may find it helpful to develop more authentic behavior.
Session 3: Grief
There’s a terrible feeling of loss.
An important aspect of ending a relationship is grieving your various losses of love.
There is a connection between overcoming denial, grieving, and disentangling from your former love partner.
Session 4: Anger
Damn the S.O.B!
Ending a love relationship results in feelings of anger.
Resolving this anger allows you to find forgiveness for yourself and for your former love partner.
It is important to deal with angry feelings because they can last for months and even years after the physical separation.
Session 5: Self Worth
Maybe I’m not so bad after all.
The previous sessions will have helped you work through your painful feelings.
Improving your feelings of self-worth will help you move beyond pain and find the strength to grow.
Session 6: Transition
I’m waking up and putting away the leftovers.
After improving your self worth you are emotionally stronger and ready to experience personal growth.
You’re ready to wake up and begin taking charge of your life.
Session 7: Openness
I’ve been hiding behind a mask.
You have been using a great deal of emotional energy trying to be someone other than who you really are.
You may choose to be free to be you.
Session 8: Love
Could somebody really care for me?
It is okay to love yourself.
The more you love yourself, the more authentically you can love others.
Session 9: Relatedness
Growing relationships helped me rebuild.
The relationships that develop following the end of a relationship can be an important part of your growing process.
You may find the relationships you make in this session will help you grow and adjust.
Session 10: Sexuality
I’m interested but I’m scared.
You long for emotional intimacy but you’re afraid.
Intimacy starts with becoming better acquainted and more intimate with yourself. Understanding your own sexuality, and learning more about the way others feel will be very helpful.
