7 Deadly Psychological Sins

Day in and day out, people enter Dr. Jennifer Jill Schwirzer’s office with the same problems. Dr. Schwirzer decided to boil those problems down, into what she calls the “7 Deadly Psychological Sins.” These aren’t moral sins per se, but they are things we do that sabotage ourselves, hurt other people, or sabotage our relationships. They are ways in which we dysfunction. The format of her videos will be like this: Dr. Schwirzer will start with an explanation of the sin, then share a “replacement behavior.” It’s futile to just point out problems, there needs to be a positive replacement for those problems. Negative reinforcement stops behavior. Positive reinforcement encourages behavior. If we don’t replace those negative patterns with something positive, then we’re likely to relapse. The replacement behavior will help to substitute that negative behavior, and will hopefully be helpful to you.
