About this item
A practicing psychotherapist discusses why it is so hard to break bad habits and offers new ways to make lasting changes to end procrastinating, overeating, passive aggressiveness, and other self-destructive behaviors.
The bestselling author of "Undoing Depression "offers a brain-based guide to help us finally get rid of the bad habits that plague us
We humans tend to get in our own way time and time again--whether it comes to not speaking up for ourselves, going back to bad romantic partners, our umpteenth diet, or engaging in any of a range of bad habits we just can't seem to shake. In "Rewire," renowned psychotherapist Richard O'Connor, PhD, reveals why our bad habits die so hard. We have two brains--one a thoughtful, conscious, deliberative self, and the other an automatic self that does most of the work without our attention. Using new research and knowledge about how the brain works, the book clears a path to lasting, effective change for behaviors that include:
- chronic disorganization
- staying in bad situations
- excessive worrying
- passive aggression
- and more
Bringing together many different fields in psychology and brain science, "Rewire" offers a refreshing, science-based new paradigm for readers of Charles Duhigg and Frank Lawlis.
