Wendi Dumbroff speaks on the role repeating cycles have on relationships

Wendi L. Dumbroff, MA, LPC, was recently featured on the ‘Whiskey Sex Talk’ podcast alongside host Romeo Perlman.

Dumbroff addressed how repeating cycles occur between partners, and the impact this has on the relationship. She focused on a model called the vulnerability cycle which illustrates how every dynamic is co-created between people. She also discussed how childhood trauma and experiences inform what triggers us in the present as well as how we cope with those triggers.   

According to Dumbroff:

“What triggers us are those buttons that were usually installed early in our life.” 

She further explained that we all take our early coping mechanisms, unconsciously, into our adult life, but that what helped us survive in the families we grew up in, is not necessarily useful in our adult relationships.

Wendi shared valuable insight into her approach when addressing these issues. She discussed how she helps individuals to identify when they are experiencing triggers and guides them on responding thoughtfully rather than reacting impulsively in their interactions with their partners.
