Hostos Professor Linda Anderson, Ph.D., is one of three authors and clinical psychologists whose upcoming book, Silent Agreements: How Unspoken Expectations Ruin Our Relationships, has been released internationally by Crown Publishing Group.
The book was years in the making and explores how unexpressed assumptions influence and very often damage our relationships and what we can do about it. Dr. Anderson wrote the book with Sonia Banks and Michelle Owens-Patterson.
Silent Agreements aims to help readers define the silent expectations in their lives by supplying the tools needed to work towards healthier communication. Readers will learn more about their own motivations and how to dismantle beliefs that undermine them. With guidelines and advice on how to have productive conversations about sex, money, commitment, family, the workplace, and health, readers will learn how to break the silence and resolve land-mine issues in their lives.
