Tell Me No Lies (Paperback Book)

Everybody lies. Friends lie to friends. Children lie to their parents. And, inevitably, husbands and wives lie to each other.

While partners lie to keep their marriage together, in reality they're helping to destroy it. In Tell Me No Lies, Ellyn Bader, Ph.D. and Peter Pearson, Ph.D. lead us through the four stages of marriage:

1) The Honeymoon
2) Emerging Differences
3) Freedom to Explore
4) Together as Two.


Get a strong start in your couples therapy sessions with this appropriately named group of resources from us at The Couples Institute, Strong Start, Better Success. In this all-in-one package we provide:

  1. A copy of our well-known book Tell Me No Lies, that shows the degrees and types of lies partners might tell each other either, instinctually or maliciously, that ultimately destroy a marriage. It’s an excellent handbook on lies both for couples and for therapists.
  2. A package of 25 Stepping Stones brochures to give your couples to explain the normal stages that relationships go through, and the problems likely to arise at each stage.
  3. A 60-minute audio of Dr. Peter Pearson sharing his recent experimentation and success with Rethinking First Sessions. It’s important to ask the right questions at the very start, or the first session is reduced to finger-pointing and blame. This resource takes you on a different and better path.
