Unmasking Masochistic Self-Defeat
Kathryn Levison, BA
People who seem to be their own worst enemies — whose histories are riddled with actions and decisions clearly antithetical to their well-being — can confound even the most skilled clinician. But while theories on its origin abound, one thing is crystal clear: masochistic self-defeat is a learned behavior. Follow along as Kathryn Levison presents insights, information, and her own personal experience that, with psychoanalytic psychotherapy, any learned behavior — even the most self-damaging — can be un-learned.
