Episode 13: Conditions of Worth
Play • 37 min

Following up from our last episode on Imposter Syndrome, this episode has Josh explain a facet of anxiety that was studied extensively by the American psychologist Carl Rogers. Conditions of Worth is a lens in which to look through at threats to self esteem. If you feel as though you have a list of conditions you must meet in order to be a good person, these are your conditions of self worth. Society imposes some of these ideas that we all abide by, but sometimes the conditions of worth we have for ourselves are unique, or perhaps even wildly unrealistic for any person to achieve. Learn about introjection, self-compassion, and why therapists explore genealogical relationships in counselling.
