about cognitive processes The cognitive processes of Restorative Engagement Therapy thoughtfully review your life experiences from several viewpoints, starting from the personal then moving to the historical and the socio-political. By reflecting on your life experiences from these multiple perspectives, any rigidly held self-concept and simplistic "single-story" gradually falls apart, making space for complexity, nuance and richness. In addition to increased resiliency and multi-dimensionality, a fluid self-concept liberates your soul to experience the following:
a more accurate and generous understanding of how your life experiences shape your perception of the world around you
a shame-reducing connection between personal experiences and broader socio-political realities and biological phenomena
a multi-dimensional framework to counteract the oppressive side-effects of dominant normative ideologies
dignified acknowledgment and recognition of the existence of unjust realities
Developed by Lance Tango, Restorative Engagement Therapy cultivates holistic changes by also engaging affective (emotional) structures of the mind - restoring the soul's capacity for self-affirming perception and interoception (internal emotional sensations).
