John P Corwin, Psychiatrist  in Madison
“We want to be the best person we can be yet we have all experienced how our way of doing things can work against us. Behaviors we learned early become automatic. We do not notice how expecting failure brings failure, how expecting rejection brings rejection, how avoidance of sadness brings sadness, or how avoidance of anger brings more anger. Even when we see these connections, that is not enough to change them. It often is not until these patterns are experienced within the safety of a therapy relationship and one uses that place to practice new ways of relating that these patterns can be changed.
