WHAT DOES ENABLING MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Enabling

Enabling is a term with a double meaning in psychotherapy and mental health. As a positive term, enabling references patterns of interaction which allow individuals to develop and grow. These patterns may be on any scale, for example within the family, or in wider society as "Enabling acts" designed to empower some group, or create a new authority for a body. In a negative sense, enabling is also used to describe dysfunctional behavior approaches that are intended to help resolve a specific problem but in fact may perpetuate or exacerbate the problem. A common theme of enabling in this latter sense is that third parties take responsibility, blame, or make accommodations for a person's harmful conduct. The practical effect is that the person himself or herself does not have to do so, and is shielded from awareness of the harm it may do, and the need or pressure to change. Enabling in this sense is a major environmental cause of addiction. A common example of enabling can be observed in the relationship between the alcoholic/addict and a codependent spouse.
