Employing Fogarty’s concepts of four dimensional self, expectations, and emptiness, this paper proposes to develop a theoretical rationale to support the hypothesis that a person who eventually burns out is often under great stress, exacerbated by unrealistic expectations dealt with by intensely pursuing people and jobs, and concurrently distancing from one’s loneliness, frustration, finiteness, and ultimately from the inevitability of one’s own frailty and death.
This paper develops a theoretical rationale, which has evolved while observing clients who have been willing and able to move into the middle phase of therapy. During this phase, a person explores more of one’s depth dimension moving one’s observations back and forth through the vertical or object dimension to the lateral or personal dimension and to the extended family for understanding, connection, and intimacy with reduced emotional, intellectual and personal fusion. In addition, the values, basic assumptions, belief system, and conceptual framework underlying one’s life are explored and taken back through the extended family to understand their formation.
