Abstract

An underlying explanation for many problems people face in their daily lives is that their behavior is not in line with their long-term goals. In the case of Sam and Judy Munro, Judy has a very clear health goal; because she is overweight and suffering from Type 2 diabetes, it is important for her to stay on her diet, exercise regularly, take her medication, get her blood tests, and lose weight. Why does she have difficulties adhering to these goals? Is there a link between Judy’s problems and son Thomas’ alcohol-and drug-related problems? How is Sam affected by others’ expectations to take care of them? What consequences do these issues have for Judy and Sam’s marriage? And is the old girlfriend who showed up in Sam’s life an actual threat to their relationship?
