Has anyone ever heard of Ivan Pavlov? Pavlov is famous for his concept of “Conditioned Reflex.” In short Pavlov found that when his dog knew he was being fed the dog would salivate. Pavlov as part of an experiment began to ring a bell each time prior to feeding his dog. Pavlov determined that because of this conditioned reflex, he could cause the dog to salivate without food just by ringing the bell. Haven’t we conditioned many of our family law attorneys in this same way? To mention divorce in front of an attorney is like ringing the bell and making the dog salivate. In this case it’s not food but money. The word “divorce” makes any of these members of the system salivate as they have the conditioned reflex that Pavlov spoke of.
