About the Author

As the child of two college professors, Cortney was raised in an academic environment. In addition to attaining a formal education in the classroom, she traveled extensively, getting a "real-world" education. Before the age of twenty, Cortney had lived in Australia and Argentina and traveled throughout Central America, South America, Russia, Scandinavia, and Western Europe. Exposed to a diversity of cultures and lifestyles from an early age, she was intrigued by the ways cultural and environmental conditions affected the psychological well-being of individuals, groups, and even entire societies. Her interest in psychology and issues of cultural diversity took academic shape as an undergraduate at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. Under the exceptional mentorship of Drs. Jaine Strauss (Macalester College) and Nancy C. Raymond (University of Minnesota), Cortney developed a strong interest in the cultural components of eating disorders, and undertook supporting research and clinical activities. After graduating magna cum laude from Macalester, Cortney entered the doctoral program in clinical psychology at Texas A&M University to work under the mentorship of Drs. David H. Gleaves and Antonio Cepeda-Benito, who specialize in cross-cultural and linguistic issues in the assessment and treatment of eating disorders. From there, she completed her predoctoral clinical internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School and joined the faculty at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) in 2006. Through her formal and informal learning experiences, Cortney saw the ways in which we lie to ourselves on a daily basis and the danger that it posed to our emotional well-being. Helping people understand themselves and see their own self-deception became a fundamental part of her clinical practice, research, teaching, and personal way of life. Although Cortney received tenure at UNLV in 2012, she formally retired from academia in 2014 to pursue a career that would allow her more time with her family and more interaction with the general public. As Cortney moves into a new phase of her career, she hopes to use psychological research and clinical observations to help the public live more fulfilling lives by confronting their self-deception. In addition to doing this generally, Cortney plans to address how self-deception contributes to unhealthy eating behavior and negative body image. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on August 6, 2022
Years ago I read a great book called The Lies We Tell Ourselves (there are many with this title) I want to read it again so plumped for this as it was psychology I couldn't remember the author or cover, I was wrong, the brilliant book I should have got is "The Lies We Tell Ourselves - how to face the truth, accept yourself and create a better life". The book I received by Courtney S Warren (if you can call it a book with around 31 pages of content, just some of the blank pages in images) is shockingly short, both cover and paper could have been printed on a desktop pc at home, it's not professional in quality. Inside back cover it says "Printed in Germany by Amazon Distribution" bought from momox. I wouldn't recommend this, I would recommend buying the very brilliant The Lies We Tell Ourselves - how to face the truth, accept ourselves and create a better life by Jon Frederickson.
