Sanctuary and Serenity


Posted on: March 27, 2010

“In July, 1999, I appeared as a guest expert on “Oprah” to discuss “The Disease to Please.” Oprah told her audience that this “disease” – the people-pleasing syndrome – is an issue that is very important and personal to her. It is a problem that she has struggled long and hard to overcome. And, she believes as I do, that there are epidemic numbers of women – and men, too – plagued by the self-imposed pressure to please others at the expense of their own health and happiness.”
Our tribute to the late Harriet B. Braiker, Ph.D. Author of The Disease to Please, Curing the People-Pleasing Syndrome
