I've observed a lot of themes around integration and disintegration recently so I thought it would be a good time to do a quick overview of Kazmier's Dabrowski's theory of Positive Disintegration.

You can find a more comprehensive overview on ep. 154: On Positive Disintegration with Chris Wells, and my Blog Post “Finding Treasure in Ruins.”

Dabrowski believes that intensity/excitability is a sign of high developmental potential, and neuroses, which we might call neurodiversity, anxiety, existential depression etc., can be positive if they move us towards our higher selves. 

In this episode:

  • 3 factors of positive development
  • Dynamisms are the inner and outer forces that drive our actions.  
  • 5 types of integration and disintegration
  • Resources on integration
  • 5 Types of overexcitability
  • Thoughts on Integration
  • Over identification and/or rejection of certain parts of our identity
  • What is Dabrowski's Sweater?
  • Getting your conflicting parts to communicate with each other.
