Developing a Reflective Self in Cyber Space

Shoshana Ringel, Ph.D., Faye Mishna, Ph.D. and Jane Sanders, M.S.W.

This article will address how cyber technology may facilitate reflective functioning with patients who present with primitive self states, fragmentation, and dissociation. The utilization of text-based information and communication technology may allow for a reflective space, apart from the therapist's explicit intrusion and the potential danger of abandonment and rejection, and may help develop the capacity for reflection and symbolization. Through a case illustration and research findings, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of using cyber technology as an adjunct to face to face treatment.
