Psychology of Lying

I am looking to understand a person's lying habit. And any tips to deal with them in a way so as to correct them and set them on the path of truth.

Usually the lies are only used as a defense mechanism - to protect the person from having to face the consequences of doing something wrong.

What is the underlying reason for lying?

Thanks for your input.
