#177 – Why We Do The Things We Do with Phillip Schanker – Part 1

Have you ever wondered why love can sometimes seem “blind”? Or why some people are drawn to people who might not be the best for them?

In this episode, we look into the fascinating world of human behavior and the underlying factors that shape our relationships. Join us as we explore the profound insights of Phillip Schanker and find out how attachment theory helps us understand our actions and habits.

Drawing from attachment theory, we discover that our early attachment experiences have a lasting impact on our attachment styles and how we form relationships. We explore how our experiences as kids affect our ability to love and form our own personalities.

We also challenge the stigmas associated with mental health by recognizing that modern psychological theories, rooted in attachment theory, embrace a broader understanding of our upbringing and its impact on various aspects of our lives.

Through this transformative episode, you will gain a deeper understanding of why we do the things we do and uncover strategies for cultivating healthier and more fulfilling relationships.
