Dr. Sarah Schewitz: How Your Childhood Wounds Are Affecting Your Relationships

Mayim and Jonathan do therapy with Dr. Sarah Schewitz, licensed psychologist specializing in love & relationships! Dr. Schewitz leads a real time Imago workshop with Mayim and Jonathan to illustrate the benefits of Imago dialogue. She helps them get to the root of their podcast disagreements, from interrupting and correcting each other to cracking jokes at inappropriate moments, learning why they react the way they do. Dr. Schewitz also helps us break down healing attachment trauma, the impact of childhood wounds on relationships, and practical ways to transform communication methods. She explains why couples therapy can put an abused partner at risk and the benefits of individual therapy alongside couples therapy. Dr. Schewitz also gives us her top signs of a healthy relationship and practical tips for getting over a breakup.

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.

Having issues doesn’t mean your relationship is broken beyond repair. When you leave one relationship for another, you are often just trading one set of incompatibilities for another. Most of us are operating from unconscious beliefs about love & relationships that we developed in childhood. We tend to pick partners who can trigger us in the same way that our caretakers disappointed us as children. So even if you leave your current relationship, you may find yourself repeating the same dynamic with different partners if you don’t heal the core issues. Therapy can help shift these patterns once and for all.
