          UnPHILtered: Outrageous Overshadow Explained


          April 26, 2018

          Your behavior and the way you act in a relationship will either contribute to the success or the failure of that relationship.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          Dr. Phil describes a type of behavior that he calls Outrageous Overshadow and how it affects the communication between a couple.

          He says that outrageous overshadow is the circumstance in which the behavior of one partner is so noisy, outrageous and over the top, that the other partner gets a free pass for their own inappropriate or dysfunctional behavior.

          “When you get into an argument, the louder and the more you yell, and scream, and throw stuff around, that just puts all the focus on you, and your partner gets away with everything because you’re drawing so much attention to yourself,” Dr. Phil says. “Stay calm; they don’t get away with anything, because now, you’re not deflecting from them.”
