By Dr. Mark Goulston and Philip Goldberg
#3836 Self-defeating behavior is the single most common reason that people seek psychotherapy. It is a poison, preventing us from achieving the love, success, and happiness we want in our lives. And what’s really frustrating is feeling we have to change and not knowing how – or knowing how but being unable to stick with change. Get Out of Your Own Way is an antidote – it explains why we sabotage ourselves, going back to childhood origins of various behaviors. More important, it offers a proven course of action to transform behavior from self-defeating to life-enhancing.
With anecdotes and usable insights drawn from twenty years of psychiatric clinical practice, Dr. Mark Goulston shares ideas that have helped thousands of patients overcome pain, fear, and confusion – to approach life’s challenges with dignity, wisdom, courage, and even humor. Get Out of Your Own Way provides practical steps toward change that you can work into your everyday life, so you can stop being your own worst enemy – and become your own best friend.
