Couples who are emotionally estranged even though they live together cannot really commit to each other. Their relationship is usually interwoven with painful, mostly unconscious and unaddressed attachment issues. These couples are characterized by a constant fear of intimacy, the leaving/approaching dynamics which provoke further fear in one of the(More)
The therapeutic process, which taps into the individual’s most vulnerable inner experience, can always reach a radical reversal of one’s perception of religion and God, which may be askew due to deep trauma.

We are psychologically predisposed to have a constant connection with others and are driven toward relationships with others.

Victims of traumatic events who experience re-traumatization often develop a highly ambivalent relationship to God and all religiosity as extremely conflictual.
