Carol Tavris

Carol Tavris is a social psychologist, writer, and lecturer whose goal is to promote psychological science and critical thinking in improving our lives. She is coauthor, with Elliot Aronson, of "Mistakes Were Made (But Not by ME): Why we justify foolish beliefs, bad decisions, and hurtful acts" (third edition, 2020) and, with Avrum Bluming, "Estrogen Matters: Why taking hormones in menopause can improve women's well-being and lengthen their lives--without raising the risk of breast cancer." Her other major books include the landmark "Anger: The misunderstood emotion," a book well known for its critical look at unvalidated notions about the inevitability of anger and the need to "ventilate" it, and how anger can best be expressed constructively. She is also author of the award-winning "The Mismeasure of Woman: Why women are not the better sex, the inferior sex, or the opposite sex." She has written hundreds of essays and book reviews on topics in psychological science, writes a column ("The Gadfly") for Skeptic magazine, and is a highly regarded lecturer who has spoken to groups around the world.
