How many times have you listened to someone make a case for their beliefs, only to wonder "what are they THINKING?"
Carol Tavris puts a lot of work into answering that question. She is a psychologist who studies the way people develop and hold onto beliefs.
The title of her Ashland lecture (May 5th) should give you a clue to her focus: "Self-Justifying Delusions."
Tavris comes to Ashland as part of Southern Oregon University's theme for the year, "Revolution."
