In this episode, Gemma and Justine get into the thick of “what is an abandonment schema?’ and how it can play out in our lives, particularly in our intimate relationships. We also explore the origins of the abandonment schema/abandonment wounds and also do our best to convey the nature of ‘pre-verbal abandonment’ wounds or attachment traumas which can have a hidden impact upon some of the intense trigger reactions we can have in adult life – especially in relation to a break-up and other intense interpersonal rejections.
