Book by University of Oregon psychologists opens eyes on betrayal

EUGENE, Ore. -- (Feb. 27, 2013) -- "Betrayal violates us," write University of Oregon psychologists Jennifer Freyd and Pamela Birrell in the preface of a new book that tackles the devastating act and probes the deep underpinnings of why people cover it up.

Betrayal therefore has a fundamental impact on one's perceptions of reality."
