blog details: A person with high rejection sensitivity often struggles to maintain healthy, satisfying and supportive relationships. In therapy, Rushabh and I are currently working on managing this trait better. A few strategies we have incorporated include:
Daily reflections to increase his sense of awareness. Invariably the interpretation of a cue as negative and rejecting often causes a person to withdraw from a relationship or respond with anger. In his daily reflections, he now incorporates a cognitive strategy of giving the person the benefit of doubt by looking at an alternative perspective for their response or suggestion.
Creating space for open dialogue. This is a designated time and space to discuss the irritants in the relationship. While ensuring the person is heard, and is open to receiving another's perspective.
