A Deeper Look At Cultural Vulnerability
Life Areas, Values & Meta Needs
by Poul Perris
What is the meaning with all this, where do I go from here?
Youngs schema theory is a developmental model addressing the life span interactional dynamics of bio- psycho- sociocultural vulnerability on the basis of core emotional needs. Psychological vulnerability is conceptualized within the model as maladaptive schemas, coping styles and modes. Biological vulnerability is addressed as innate temperamental factors, and social vulnerability is addressed as the quality of core needs within intimate relationships. Cultural vulnerability is tied to our moral development and sense of meaning and is influenced by the set of norms, values and attitudes in our various life areas.
This presentation will take a deeper look at cultural vulnerability and outline its impact on moral development and our quest for meaning and how it can be assessed and clinically addressed in Schema Therapy.
