Marilyn’s father works full time and is less hovering than his wife. ” Within the context of her family, Marilyn has learned that emotions are bad and scary, and can’t be tolerated. She arrived at her therapist’s office highly anxious, feeling afraid of failing, of disappointing others, of her future, and ultimately, of being rejected. She has learned to avoid these unpleasant thoughts and feelings by distracting herself and tuning out, but that is creating an endless cycle that has impacted her ability to study, her academic achievement, her school attendance, and her friendships.
