About the Course:
Why do people dodge responsibility when things fall apart? Why the parade of public figures unable to own up when they screw up? Why the endless marital quarrels over who is right? Why can we see hypocrisy in others but not in ourselves? Are we all liars? Or do we really believe the stories we tell?
Backed by years of research and delivered in lively, energetic prose, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) offers a fascinating explanation of self-deception—how it works, the harm it can cause, and how we can overcome it.
The fundamental processes of self-deception and self-justification can influence the ethical decision-making of clinicians. This book facilitates self-awareness and provides clinicians with tools that can minimize self-deception, self-justification, and the potential effects in psychotherapy.
