Up to 50% of people have this schema, it’s incredibly common and underpins a great many relationship, personality and mental health issues.
Today we discuss the Emotional Deprivation Schema. It’s one of the core schemas, it develops early life usually in the first 10 years. It can be a tricky one for us to identify as it tends to be pervasive but elusive at the same time.
What is it:-
The Emotional Deprivation schema is the expectation that one’s desire for emotional connection will not be adequately fulfilled. You don’ expect people to be there for you in different ways. Young identified three forms: (1) deprivation of nurturance (the absence of affection or caring); (2) deprivation of empathy (the absence of listening or understanding); and (3) deprivation of protection (the absence of strength or guidance from others).
In this episode Justine and Gemma discuss this schema in depth and how it shows up in our lives, how it plays out in the clients they see as well as discussing where it comes from and how it tends to develop.
In an earlier episode (No.5) Gemma talks about core emotional needs.
