Cortney Warren, Ph.D., is an associate adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and the author of Lies We Tell Ourselves: The Psychology of Self-Deception.
Humans are masters of self-deception. We don’t like to think of ourselves as liars; it hurts us too much to admit. So we lie to ourselves about that, too. As a clinical psychologist, I am frequently confronted with the fact that we all lie to ourselves. And I believe that it is our biggest obstacle to living a fulfilling life. The Naked Truth is dedicated to confronting self-deception. No sugar-coating. No coddling. Just the honest reflection of you standing naked in front of a mirror.
