How to Have an Honest Discussion Without Accusations and Defensiveness

Shirley Glass • 8/28/2017

Shirley P. Glass, Ph.D., whom the New York Times has called the "godmother of infidelity research" is the author of NOT "Just Friends": Protect Your Relationship from Infidelity and Heal the Trauma of Betrayal (The Free Press). Full of astonishing revelations, NOT "Just Friends" draws on more than two decades of original studies and hundreds of clinical cases to document the new crises of infidelity. Dr Glass died on October 8, 2003, after an eleven year struggle with cancer.
