Conscious Dating After Divorce

By · Comments Comments Off on Conscious Dating After Divorce

SteveBanner2In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, we explore what Freud called “the unconscious” –  the collection of repressed thoughts, wishes, fantasies and drives, many of which have an aggressive quality. What is the relevance? Inside these unconscious conflicts lies the answer to why we are attracted to and or seem to attract a certain kind of person.

Elizabeth Tupling

Elizabeth Tupling

The show is called Conscious Dating and our guest is Elizabeth J. Tupling, MS, TLLP is a psychotherapist specializing in individual, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Huntington Woods, Michigan.

For  the person who is wondering why they are always drawn to the “bad boy” or “bad girl”, the addict, the emotionally and or legally unavailable person, it’s important to “open up the hood and look underneath”.   What we’ll usually find is a long standing, established pattern of being attracted to the same kind of person, and not knowing why.  Like a moth to a flame, we drift toward exactly what we consciously know is not healthy for us – it’s a real primitive, primal process that originates in early “imprinting” in the brain.  This imprinting creates an unconscious definition of how relationships should feel for us – good or bad.

The challenge for the listener is to examine what feels “good” in the early stages of an attraction.  And if the person is doing a truthful inventory of these feelings they might find that subtle cues of rejection, the need to chase, dismissal of one’s needs, justification of disrespectful behaviors, all feel vaguely familiar, comfortable and worse off, comforting.  Doesn’t make sense does it?  It usually doesn’t, it’s unconscious.

The Anatomy of An Affair – Part 3

By · Comments Comments Off on The Anatomy of An Affair – Part 3

David Feder on affairsIn this the 3rd segment of our series, The Anatomy of an Affair, we focus on two aspects of recovery.  David Feder believes strongly that moving “from discovery to recovery” means much more than merely moving on and allowing time to pass.  David says, “if you do that you are leaving the quality of your recovery and your life up to the Gods”.  He asks, are you sure that that is what you want to do?

img_cheating_spouseIn this segment we begin by discussing what should be considered when making the decision of whether staying together and rebuilding your relationship should even be considered.  If not, we review  the other option of focusing your recovery on yourself and on becoming the best version of yourself that you can be.

This segment also reviews some of the more common reactions people have once learning of an affair, and we provide tips to take care of your health during this difficult time.  The early stage of recovery is a critical time in which you and your partner are at your most vulnerable and this should be taken seriously.  Safety is of course paramount.

Regardless of whether the affair that is impacting your life surfaced recently or whether you have known about it for some time, you will benefit from the constructive and important information included in this segment.
