Consistently Made Bad Relationship Theories Of Pe
Examine the following Case Study of Sascha
Sascha is a 40-year-old woman who was initially referred to therapy to address her anxiety and
“In the first consultation, she indicates that she believes her instability in mood is
triggered by her difficulty in sustaining relationships. She reports that she no longer feels fulfilled
in her current relationship and that she would like to be with someone who is less emotionally
distant. She also reports that she doesn’t seem to have a strong sense of who she is and is
struggling with self-identity.
She reports during your session with her that she is the youngest of three children, with her older
brother being the golden child in the family, and successful in business, whilst her older sister is
very hard working. She further reports that her father was an alcoholic who was mostly absent
from home and rather engaged in hobbies and activities that centred around his drinking. When
he was home he was verbally and physically abusive and the entire family had to eggshell around
him. Her mother was completely emotionally absent as she was focused on her father’s needs.
Sascha further notes that she has engaged in many risky behaviours during her teenage years
and early adulthood, particularly in her use of drugs and alcohol. She also reports that she has
consistently made bad relationship decisions, that tend to be short-lived and unstable. She
reports being in immense emotional pain and hopes that you will be able to help her develop a
better sense of who she is”
