Living on Automatic: How Emotional Conditioning Shapes Our Lives and Relationships
by KACAP Member Christine Adams, MD

Living on Automatic develops the ground-breaking new concept of “emotional conditioning," including how it occurs and how it harms people’s relationships, leading to emotional illness.The concept is described by the late adult psychiatrist, Homer B. Martin, MD, and child psychiatrist, Christine B. L. Adams, MD. Together they have eighty years of combined experience doing dynamic psychotherapy with several thousand patients of all ages. 
Recently the book was named an Award-Winning Finalist in the “Best New Non-Fiction” category of the 2018 Best Book Awards sponsored by American Book Fest: http://americanbookfest.com/2018bbafullresults.html
