Many of us encounter the same challenges over and over, even when our circumstances change. Perhaps we find ourselves having similar relationship problems with every partner we choose, feeling isolated no matter who we are surrounded by, or internalizing a sense of failure no matter how many successes we accumulate. If ‘crazy' is doing the same thing while expecting different results, it seems that many of us are unwittingly engaging in crazy behavior. Of course, most of us do not want to admit to our own craziness. But, what if, by confronting and understanding our unhelpful behavior, we can learn how to embrace healthy and fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others? Offering relatable case studies and revealing exercises for self-reflection, Mark Borg Jr. PhD helps us recover the lost parts of ourselves so that we can embrace new levels of self-acceptance and a deeper connection with others. Borg, a psychoanalyst practicing in NYC and a community and clinical psychologist, is a supervisor at the William Alanson White Institute.
