Author Name: Dr. Maureen E Hosier and Berta Hosier Conger
In this breakout set of self-help books, the language of relationships is redefined as you read about yourself. Traditional labels are set aside in favor of understanding what you’re truly thinking and feeling, why you’re the person who gives up yourself to make the relationship work, and why this style of relating isn’t working for you.
A new perspective on relationships emerges as you learn about yourself and why you’re driven to do anything to please your partner. You’ll learn that you’re not your authentic self in your important relationships. You’ll also learn how to get back in touch with who you really are.
Maureen E. Hosier has worked as a licensed psychologist in California since 1993. Her career focus has been the study of the psychological forces that underlie the behaviors, feelings, and emotions between people in relationships. She has specifically been interested in how a child’s lack of development of self‑esteem and self‑confidence within a parent‑child relationship, influences their adult style, patterns, and cycles of relating.
Berta Hosier Conger has a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Ohio State University. She went on to build a thirty‑year career in banking and investments.
