Use of Identities in Behavioral Change and Development.
Rago, James J., Jr.
Summarized is a therapy approach utilizing characterizations designed to help the client reduce his neurotic behaviors and develop his true potentials. Growing up, he may have been forced to reject aspects of his personality to meet others' expectations. Thus, he is not integrated or whole. To reduce the control used to hide his rejected parts of himself and others, and discover and integrate them, identities are formulated which personify these parts. The client is coached to experience himself as these people. Subsequently, he discovers that there is no further need to hide these aspects of himself. (Author)
