Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Jealousy

Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Jealousy
Thursday, March 19, 2015 9:09 am

In this webinar, jealousy is discussed in terms of evolutionary theory (parental investment model), universal patterns of defense against threat to attachment, core beliefs about self, maladaptive coping (reassurance-seeking, testing, withdrawing, punishing, interrogating, restraining), intolerance of uncertainty, and thought-action fusion.

Participants learn how to develop a case conceptualization, normalize this intense emotion, link jealousy to values, examine how jealous behavior interferes with a valued relationship, distinguish between productive and unproductive worry, use detached mindfulness to accept intrusive thoughts while not acting on them, evaluate how personal schemas are related to jealousy, and enhance independence and self-care. Finally, we examine how loss may be decatastrophized, safety behaviors relinquished, acceptance embraced and personal roles elaborated for multiple meanings in life.
