Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- To feel abandonment is to feel that you were withdrawn from protection by a caretaker or perceived group that you had believed had your well being at heart.
It is to experience the loss of emotional and/or physical support and the feeling that one is alone with life's challenges.
This sense of abandonment may lead to deep seated feelings of isolation and may be experienced through early life disruptions such as adoption or loss of a family member.
