Dealing in Deception

Welcome to Edition 320 of Institute Inbrief. In our previous article (Edition 319), we acknowledged that engaging in deception can have cognitive, emotional, and social benefits. In this edition, we examine the different types of deception, see how it creates relational fallout, and examine the question of gullibility: that is, are we hardwired to be suspicious, or to trust, and how might habitual lying change things?


Also in this edition:

  1. The Eclectic Therapist (Order Now)
  2. The Benefits of Intentional Daydreaming
  3. A Case Using Equine-Assisted Therapy Counselling: From Resistance to Acceptance
  4. Quotations, Seminar Timetables & More!
