Why Can’t I Change?  How to Conquer Your Self-Destructive Patterns

By Dr. Shirley Impellizzeri

Why do people make the same mistakes over and over again? Why do we choose the wrong partners, stay in dead-end jobs, or fall into bad habits or addictions? Why are some people perpetual victims? Why can’t we just change whatever isn’t working and get on with it? It’s because they’re living on emotional auto-pilot, a state in which behavior is defined by unconscious patterns developed in childhood. In her book Why Can’t I Change?, Dr. Shirley describes how our attachment styles directly affect our brain structure and how our brain structure directly affects our behavior, and will teach readers how to change their behaviors and, therefore, change their brains.
