If the cover-up is worse than the crime, blindness to betrayal can be worse than the betrayal itself. Whether the betrayer is an unfaithful spouse, an abusive authority figure, an unfair boss, or a corrupt institution, we often refuse to see the truth order to protect ourselves.
This book explores the fascinating phenomenon of how and why we ignore or deny betrayal, and what we can gain by transforming ""betrayal blindness"" into insight.
- Explains the psychological phenomenon of ""betrayal blindness"", in which we implicitly choose unawareness in order to avoid the risk of seeing treachery or injustice
- Based on the authors' substantial original research and clinical experience carried out over the last decade as well as their own story of confronting betrayal
- Filled with fascinating case studies involving unfaithful spouses, abusive authority figures and corrupt institutions, to name a few
