Overview

One of the primary means of coping with emotional deprivation and poor care in childhood is the “Detached Protector Mode”. It is a core feature and coping mode of dismissing-avoidant attachment.

This mode helps us manage pain by withdrawing from it and by making our emotional experience seem less important. That helps us accept situations of mis-attunement, not being comforted, and even endangerment. This is something we learn in childhood.

The Detached Protector Mode overlaps greatly with maladaptive day dreaming, dissociation, ‘checking out’, being emotionally unavailable, numbing out, blocking out your feelings, self-gaslighting, and even discomfort with emotional closeness.

In this workshop, we will take the position that the detached protector is a ‘functional symptom’ which helped us cope with emotional deprivation as children, but now causes us difficulties as adults.

By seeing and feeling the utility and ‘sanity’ of this mode we will move towards letting go of shame associated it.

At the same time, to be balanced, we’ll study and acknowledge how the Detached Protector Mode hurts our quality of life and ability to connect with others as adults

In this course we’ll focus on doing experiential work on this mode. This approach is based in the belief that to heal deeply rooted neurosis that experiential work is needed. Simple psycho-education or more superficial interventions like cognitive behavioral therapy don’t work, usually. We will do this work through guided meditation.

In this course we’ll do the following exercises/meditations:

  1. Parts work on the detached protector mode (chair work) (Pro-symptom and Anti-symptom positions).
  2. Mentalizing the Modes Meditation on the detached protector mode.
  3. Schema repatterning meditation on the ’emotional-inhibition schema’.

This course draw from:

  1. attachment theory
  2. schema therapy
  3. ideal parent figure protocol
  4. coherence therapy
  5. metacognitive interpersonal therapy

Please note that this course is a meditation course, not group therapy or counseling.

The facilitator, Cedric Reeves, will teach this course as a meditation teacher and not in any other capacity.
