SelvesWork is a way to help yourself change in a particular area of your life. Choose the theme of your work, and then attend a series of 5 to 10 Voice Dialogue sessions.
You'll meet the relevant Primary Selves that help you live your life. Since your Primary Selves like to be in charge and run things, they tend to protectively hold you in the status quo and keep you from changing.
You will also be able to discover a less dominant set of inner selves called your Disowned Selves. These selves need to be discovered and developed by you for any lasting change to become a reality.
As a result of doing Voice Dialogue and talking from your primary and disowned selves, an Aware Ego process will begin to develop.
Having an Aware Ego process is extremely helpful if you want to be able to act differently in a particular area of your life. This centering function allows you to embrace both primary and disowned selves and gives you far more choice in how you express yourself.
In addition, an Aware Ego process will help you protect and manage your own vulnerable needs in more direct and conscious ways, rather than slipping into the old coping strategies of the Primary Self-System.
Since Voice Dialogue is an experiential method, the above ideas will make a lot more sense once you have actually experienced an individual session.
