ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Harriet Lerner, PhD, is one of America’s most respected relationship experts. Renowned for her theoretical contributions to the psychology of women and family systems theory, she served as a staff psychologist at The Menninger Clinic for over two decades. She is the author of numerous scholarly articles and popular books, including the New York Times bestseller The Dance of Anger, which has sold several million copies with over 25 foreign editions. She currently has a private psychotherapy practice in Lawrence, Kansas, and lectures nationwide. She and her psychologist husband have two grown sons.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Renowned psychologist and bestselling author of The Dance of Anger sheds new light on the two most important words in the English language "I'm sorry" and offers a unique perspective on the challenge of healing broken connections and restoring trust. Harriet Lerner, PhD, has been studying apologies and why some people won't give them for more than two decades. Now she offers compelling stories and solid theory that bring home how much the simple apology matters and what is required for healing when the hurt we've inflicted (or received) is far from simple. Readers will learn how to craft a deeply meaningful I'm sorry and avoid apologies that only deepen the original injury. Why Won't You Apologize?: Healing Big Betrayals and Everyday Hurts also addresses the compelling needs of the injured party the one who has been hurt by someone who won't apologize, tell the truth, or feel remorse. Lerner explains what drives both the non-apologizer and the over-apologizer, as well as why the people who do the worst things are the least able to own up. She helps the injured person resist pressure to forgive too easily and challenges the popular notion that forgiveness is the only path to peace of mind. With her trademark humor and wit, Lerner offers a joyful and sanity-saving guide to setting things right.
