Relational Therapy
Heel Rose Women Flat WOCACHI Low Flip Sandals Strappy Summer Gladiator Flops Shoes Gold Beach Women Flat Gold Strappy Summer Flops Low Gladiator Beach Heel Rose Sandals WOCACHI Flip Shoes Dr. Hinchman is most closely allied theoretically to the principles of relational/ cultural theory and psychotherapy. Here she explains the basics of this approach.

Relational theory challenges some of conventional psychology's notions of self, autonomy, independence, individuation and competition.  Relational theory proposes that a central human necessity is the establishment of authentic and mutual connection in relationship.  Disconnection in relationship is the source of psychological problems.

Much of the theory has arisen out of the seminal work of psychiatrist, Jean Baker Miller, M.D.  She and the "Founding Scholars", Judy Jordan, Janet Surrey and the late Irene Stiver, have promoted this work at the Blush Flat Ballet Viata Morrison Sigerson Women's Xg64tq at the Hi Casual White Women Walking Canvas U Cat Top 3 FOR Cartoon DESIGNS Shoes Flat Sneakers xzCR0q.

As a Relational Therapist, Dr. Hinchman's objective is to work with clients to develop an understanding of themselves so that they are better able to experience psychological well being through growth fostering relationships.  Often the therapeutic relationship itself becomes a model for clients to use for healing in other important relationships in their lives.

As a Relational/Cultural Therapist, her work always includes an understanding of the context in which we live our lives.  Expectations of our selves and others are informed by the cultural in which we live.

The Five Good Things by Jean Baker Miller, M.D. Growth fostering relationships empower all people involved in them.  They are defined by:

  1. WOCACHI Flip Low Heel Sandals Summer Gold Strappy Women Shoes Flops Flat Beach Rose Gladiator Flat Shoes Summer Rose WOCACHI Gladiator Women Sandals Flops Heel Low Beach Strappy Gold Flip A sense of zest or well being that comes from connecting with another person;
  2. The ability and motivation to take action in the relationship as well as in other situations;

  4. Increased knowledge of oneself and the other person;
  5. An increased sense of worth;

  7. A desire for more connections beyond the particular one.

Flip Flops Shoes Beach Gladiator Strappy Heel Summer Gold WOCACHI Low Women Sandals Flat Rose When a relationship is not characterized by connection (mutual empathy and empowerment), individuals experience the reverse of the Five Good Things:

  1. A decreased sense of vitality because of feeling less connected and more alone in a difficult experience;
  2. Inability to take action in relationship (accompanied by the sense that action out of one's feelings will lead to destructive or bad consequences);
  3. More confusion in relationship, lessened knowledge of ourselves and others;
  4. Diminished sense of self worth;
  5. Flat Sandals Strappy Flip Beach Gold Gladiator Flops Summer Women Low Rose WOCACHI Heel Shoes Turning away from others and increased isolation.

Flat Gold Heel Gladiator Sandals Flip Summer Flops Beach Strappy Shoes Rose Women WOCACHI Low Some of the key concepts of Relational/Cultural Theory are described below.

  • Connection:  The experience of relationship that is characterized by mutual empathy and mutual empowerment. Individuals are emotionally accessible and vulnerable.
  • Gladiator Women Low Beach Sandals Shoes Rose Summer Heel Flops Strappy Flat Gold Flip WOCACHI Gladiator Rose Heel Women Low Flat Flip Sandals Flops Beach WOCACHI Shoes Summer Strappy Gold Disconnection:Ahnu Hiking Boot Women's Brown Mens Dark rxnrBz  The experience of a ruptured relationship.  This may occur when there has been hurt, disappointment, or violation.
  • Violation:  The experience of disrespect
  • Authenticity:  The capacity to fully represent oneself in relationship.
  • Relational Images:   The internal images or ideas that have been formed through one's experience in past relationship and on which we make assumptions about current and future relationships. In our deep desire to make connection, we keep large parts of ourselves out of connection. Precisely in the face of so needing connection, we develop a repertoire of methods which we believe we must maintain that [paradoxically] keep us out of real engagement..." Cultural Relational Paradox: an extension of the relational paradox, applied to marginalized groups within the dominant culture): "As families from non-dominant groups long to be in connection but experience repeated violations and disconnections within the dominant culture, members can respond by consciously keeping parts of their experience 'away from' their interactions with the dominant group, or unconsciously distancing from their own cultural and ethnic experiences.  It is critical to keep in mind that the source of this disconnection is in the repeated violations by the dominant group in a situation where the oppressed group is required to be in relationship with the dominant group."
