No Self Without An Other

“Reorganizing the meaning of psychological problems is not only a cognitive process but also one of deep emotional understanding.  To be transformative, it necessarily includes the felt sense of connection with an empathic other.  Being understood is a relational process which reorients awareness away from defensive identifications with limiting narratives of self and toward a sense of being-with others based in appropriate boundaries and a mature sense of autonomy.”      …Marjorie Schuman         

“Mindfulness-Informed Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis: Inquiring Deeply”, ch. 10, p. 186
