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!

What is Mental Health Social Support (MHSS)?

View

Welcome to Edition 151 of Institute Inbrief. December is just around the corner and you may already be getting into the festive spirit. This usually means an increased sense of community – especially in relation to your loved ones: family, friends and extended social networks.
 
If you can relate to this feeling, then this edition’s article could be one of the most insightful this year. We will be talking about Mental Health Social Support: what it is and how it positively impacts communities. We hope this article is an eye-opener for many readers (more information about MHSS will follow in upcoming weeks).
