It will use fun stories from real couples and examples from research to examine how cognitive and emotional processes cause blindness and rationalization, and distort couples’ perceptions. This course will identify research-based strategies to increase trust and connection, and professionals can use this information to identify and appropriately address issues related to self-deception and honesty in the individuals with whom they work.
