Richard Driscoll, PhD, is the principle author of the "ever popular" Romeo and Juliet effect research (a Google search yields 40 thousand citations).
Driscoll has produced several innovative anxiety reduction training CDs, including "Shield Out Negativity," "Confidence Training for Tests," and "Blast Past Road Page."
He published "You Still Don't Understand," with Nancy Ann Davis, Ph.D., who is also his wife. The authors carefully identify camouflaged illusions between men and women, explore their origins, and to suggest ways to bridge our differences. Close observation shows how human nature is somewhat chivalrous, protecting women while holding men accountable, although most of us believe it is the other way around.
The authors are interested in stabilizing relationships and including fathers in families. The authors suggest ways to see through the fiction and focus on the realities.

The foundation in ordinary language and common sense builds upon our existing competencies, and is used to integrate theoretical formulations. The guidelines specify the tasks of therapy, and integrate the various techniques by which the objectives might be accomplished. Psychotherapy, like other activities, is a sequence of intentional actions meant to accomplish specifiable objectives.
Masquerades: Finding Love Amid the Myths and Fantasies
In earlier times, masquerades were sensual, festive gatherings in which participants wore masks and costumes to conceal their normal identities, and so freed themselves to be whoever they wished. We look here at something similar, in which egos, expectations, and nature herself combine to fashion myths and shared fantasies of who and what we are, which are at odds with our real selves.
