Blackwell North Amer
A leading psychotherapist uses the most up-to-date research in psychology, moral development, and ethics to provide readers with a much-needed guide in a time when people often cannot distinguish right from wrong. In Why Good People Do Bad Things you will discover how to identify, balance, and breathe life into your personal values - how they get out of whack in the first place; what morality is all about and why it doesn't have to be a suffocating list of dos and don'ts - morality combined with reason can enrich your life and increase your feelings of self-worth; how you can nurture empathy, moral reasoning, and sensitivity; the effect of your parenting styles on a child's budding conscience; how to identify the pitfalls that allow you to fool yourself with excuses and unconscious defenses; important tips for sorting through and making difficult and ethical decisions; the qualities of character that will empower actions; and how to break through the clouds of shame, guilt, and fear that obscure the good person within.
