Empowerment Psychology - Lecture 2 @ The Fitness Village

From the organizer: Organised by Psychology of Empowerment. Hosted by The Fitness village.

Join us in the second of a 4-part series presented by Douglas Holwerda, a Hanoi based psychotherapist. The purpose of these talks is to increase awareness of basic principles used in psychotherapy that can help an individual to better know themselves, how they relate to others and to find their place in the world. Note that each lecture is completely stand-alone, talking about different subjects. No need to commit to all 4!

Lecture Two - Relating to Others

Boundaries and limitations…to treat oneself fairly means wanting no more nor no less for myself than I want for another. When we are empowered we become assertive in the way we relate to others. We are less likely to be victimised and reduce the feelings that are associated with too much selflessness or selfishness.

Representing oneself…letting go of control. By speaking from a clear sense of self, we give others the information to know how we think or feel. We recognise that our perspectives and opinions are subjective and may differ from the ways others see things.

Cultural differences…navigating the unfamiliar. This starts with understanding the gulf that separates any two humans. We are unique and have come to understand life from the experiences that have shaped our perspectives. Many of the cultural underpinnings exist in schemas and unconscious assumptions about right actions. Eastern and Western societies are oriented in different sources and still represent different ways of seeing the world and functioning in it.
