The Arbinger Institute is an organization that began from scholarly study of the problem of self deception. That led to demand for organizational application. As we understand it, those organizational applications were generally business applications. But later they began to be applied to therapeutic work, especially, but not exclusively, family work.
The books most likely to be helpful for families and for therapeutic endeavors are The Anatomy of Peace and Leadership and Self Deception. These are fictional works, where the stories told are about people learning and initially applying Arbinger principles. Both are part of the life story of the fictional story of Lou Herbert, a business man with a very challenging teen-aged daughter. In The Anatomy of Peace, Lou and his wife and daughter learn Arbinger principles in a therapeutic context. In Leadership and Self Deception, Lou is applying the Arbinger principles to his business.
