The Eye and the ‘I’: The Construction and Use of the Observer in Cognitive-Analytic Psychotherapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Robert Marx, M.A., MSc, D Clin Psy, Dip Psy and Sarah Marx, PG Dip Psy

This paper explores issues in the integration of cognitive-analytic therapy and mindfulness-based therapy. Differences in the conceptualization of the observer part of the self in both approaches - as centralized and independent as opposed to decentralized and fluid - are associated with different therapeutic emphases - on task and structure versus process. The tensions between these clinical and theoretical stances are explored, both in an individual and organizational (NHS) context.
