Author information

Milton R. Cudney, Ph.D., (1930-1992) was a professor of counseling at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Dr. Cudney originated the theory to eliminate self-defeating behaviors which asserts that at each new moment people have the ability to make a choice for either a self-defeating or life-enhancing behavior.

Review quote

"The most detailed examinations of self-defeating behavior I have ever read. Contains some very useful methods of defeating self-defeatism."--Albert Ellis, PH.D., President, Institute of Rational-emotive therapy, and author of "A New Guide To Rational Living""Some of my patients would not need therapy if they would read this book."--Dr. Alan Loy McGinnis, author of "The Power of Optimism""We can choose to use self-defeating or life-enhancing behaviors. The first time a self-defeating behavior eased a difficult time was probably an accident. After that, we chose it. Now, we can un-choose it...."[Self-Defeating Behaviors] "is logical and most helpful."--"The Phoenix"
