Are you (or your partner) one of those people who constantly apologize for everything, even for things that no apology is needed (for example, sorry I didn't pick up the paper you dropped)?

If so, this is not only a disempowered, defeated stance but also a subconscious passive-aggressive manipulative move. Yes, over apologizing has a "shadow" side.

In this talk, Galit and I unpack the science and art of over-apologizing, through examples from the clinic and our lives.
Practical examples will help you stop over-apologizing, as well as equip you with better ways to deal with an over-apologizing partner.
