The Negative Cycle

Every relationship has its positive and negative cycles.  I first learned about cycles from Sue Johnson author of Hold Me Tight and Love Sense. Her theory Emotionally Focused Therapy is a big deal in the therapy world and has two main concepts one of which is “the cycle”.  Recently I have been tracking the negative cycle that individuals have with themselves to increase their awareness of their action tendencies (the knee-jerk reaction that we do as a result of a core feeling such as sadness or anger).  I will do a video talking more about how to track a negative cycle this week. Stay tuned and in the meantime check out Sue Johnson’s book Hold Me Tight .
