Synopsis

Some couples need more than just the run-of-the-mill relationship advice to solve their problems in love. When out-of-control emotions are the root cause of problems in a relationship, no amount of effective communication or intimacy building will fix what ails it. What these "high-conflict" couples need is help regulating the emotions that provoke the "escape or win" mode of interaction that has come to define them. Using mindfulness and distress tolerance techniques, readers can learn how to de-escalate conflict situations before they have a chance to flare into serious fights. Other techniques help partners in a relationship disclose their personal fears and vulnerabilities and validate one another's experiences. Ultimately, readers who practice the techniques in this book will learn how to manage problems with negotiation, not conflict, and how to find true acceptance and closeness with each other.

Customer Reviews

I found out about this book though my support forum. Everyone I had spoken to recomended it highly. Me and my husband are on the 3rd chapter. We have found that it is best to work on one chapter a week to implicate the practise that are written at the end of each one. This book is amazing. When reading it it might as well as said our names in it. There are many high conflict couples out there and we needed this guidance very much. This book is a breath of fresh air. Easily laid out. Written in a very easy understanding way. I take my hat off to Alan E. Fruzetti. I suffer with BPD and although there is a DBT element to this book it is for anyone who is any kind of relationship crisis. Wonder and thank you to Allen for a book I never thought in a million years would exist which I so desperately needed. It goes to prove there are many conflicts in many realationships all over the world. This book conforts you to know you're not alone or an exception.. Thank you
