How Personal Issues Arise - A Multimodal Therapy View

Personality is shaped and maintained through the seven modalities of affect, behaviour, biology, cognition, imagery, interpersonality and sensation. A person can acquire misinformation or a lack of skills in all modalities. This can lead to a multitude of problems.
Three Multimodal Therapy Concepts about the Mind
  • A person with defensive reactions blocks awareness of themself and others
  • Ambivalent reactions lead to indecision, procrastination and inertia
  • Excessive dependency, hate, misplaced love and unrealistic demands of others causes inquietude

The Client - Multimodal Therapy Therapist Relationship

The client gains insight into problems through learning to track their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. The therapist has a multitude of interventions, but only uses those which are specific to the problems and personality modalities. Therapy is tailored to the client?s personality, problems, and goals.
