To explain self-defeating behavior, or self-sabotage, Dr. Govan in 2006 proposed a new model of human behavior through his theoretical dissertation Self-defeating Behavior: The Theory of the Evolving Psyche.
Scholars from the United States, Canada, and elsewhere have used ideas from this model.
Since its original publication Dr. Govan has refined and extended these ideas, which now include a proposed mechanism of treatment for stopping self-defeating behavior, or stopping self-sabotage, termed collectively as moderative psychotherapy.
A new manuscript including these critical updates is being prepared for publication.
Stay informed about the latest news and updates regarding moderative psychotherapy.
