9781568215921: The Many Faces of Deceit: Omissions, Lies, and Disguise in Psychotherapy

Deception is ubiquitous - commonplace in our everyday interactions, part and parcel of our legal system and political culture. Yet few have studied its role in therapy. In The Many Faces of Deceit, Drs. Helen Gediman and Janice Lieberman show how unsuspecting therapists can miss omissions, lies, and outright imposture that can insidiously infiltrate and fundamentally alter the therapeutic process. Covering extensive clinical material, including the dilemma of supervising those who fabricate their work, the authors consider deception in its many varieties, alerting clinicians to its presence and guiding them in helping patients overcome the deceitful tendencies that can render therapy meaningless.

About the Author:

Helen K. Gediman is a psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City.

JANICE LIEBERMAN has been the featured consumer reporter on NBC s Today for ten years and was previously the consumer correspondent on Good Morning America. Lieberman also anchored Steals and Deals, which appeared nightly on CNBC. She is the author, with Jason Raff, of Tricks of the Trade: A Consumer Survival Guide. She lives with her husband and two children in New Jersey.

From Publishers Weekly:

Investigating themes of imposture and deceit, two New York City psychoanalysts offer a unique, cautionary manual that will be of great benefit to psychotherapists and thoughtful patients concerned with what really happens during the analytic hour. Using case histories, the authors demonstrate how patients often deceive their analysts or therapists through lies, omissions, secrets, elaborate denial fantasies or personal myths-and how an analyst may be totally unaware of such deceptions, which are forms of resistance aimed at subverting the treatment. Turning away from case studies to imposture in life and art, they examine David Hwang's play, M. Butterfly, based on a true story of cross-dressing, lying and spying, and look at painter Arshile Gorky, who was prone to deception, which the authors trace to devastating childhood traumas-paternal abandonment, his mother's death from starvation, exile-during the Turkish genocide of Armenians. Gediman, New York University clinical professor of psychology, wrote Fantasies of Love and Death in Life and Art; Lieberman teaches at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.
