Everybody lies. Some lies are loving and harmless. But, others are enormously destructive. Couples’ patterns of deception often begin innocently but end in couples destroying the love they once had. Self- deception, conflict avoidance and felony lies all undermine commitment and connection. Learn to identify and disrupt deception, confront evasiveness and hypocrisy and facilitate differentiation.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Delineate 4 main types of lies.
  2. Describe 6 types of confrontation to disrupt patterns of deception and facilitate differentiation.
