The word "ego" simply means "I". Ego state work addresses "you" at different ages and stages during your life. You could say that some people never grow up due to trauma, lack of healthy role models, lack of opportunity, or life circumstances and situations. This could explain your difficulty responding to some situations in an age-appropriate manner. URGES therapy helps clients "grow up" and outgrow past experiences that keep them stuck in immature emotional and behavioral patterns.
URGES treatment was developed through my work with clients who struggled with addiction, those who needed help to control urges while learning to gain and maintain sobriety. I have generalized my treatment process to help clients with any symptom, not only addictive urges.
An important part of treatment is addressing the underlying causes for addiction or other mental or behavioral health symptoms. URGES therapy can even address difficult to treat physical symptoms, which can be the result of unresolved trauma.
