Healing Big Betrayals and Everyday Hurts
December 24, 2016

As a former staff psychologist at the Menninger Clinic, Harriet Lerner has studied apologies for more than 20 years. She says you don’t need to know when an apology isn’t coming or “when a bad apology flattens you.” A good apology can deliver almost instant healing. Author of the best-seller The Dance of Anger, Lerner writes with humor and an easy intelligence about apologizing, making amends and forgiving.
