Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy

beyond the recovery from trauma

The Still Face Paradigm and the mechanism of mirror neurons are two foundational principles of Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy (MIMT): as a matter of fact, both of them have emphasized – in a scientific way – the innate relational dimension that characterises the processes of Self construction and existential meaning-making of every human being.

Why use the mirror? By using the mirror, therapists can explore the client’s relationship with their own Self since the very beginning, while the concept of “Self” is objectified as an “Other” with whom the client interacts. Consequently, the intersubjective dimension of humanity is experienced in a new way, which contributes to making change faster. Based on a conscious, targeted activation of the specific neurobiological circuits regulating face recognition and the identification of emotions related to facial expressions, MIMT is an effective form of psychotherapy, conceived as a process of reconstruction of the Self. The therapeutic goal is helping the client recreating a deep sense of connection with and belonging to their own image, reflected by the mirror; in addition, MIMT aims to overcome the shame and self-loathing that typically characterise traumatised clients, by helping them experiencing a new self-compassion.
