More About The Power of Two by Ph.D. Susan Heitler; Paula Singer
 
 
 
Overview
A seasoned clinical psychologist shows couples how to resolve their differences with dialogue
-- Details the communication and resolution skills that happy couples use to settle differences and strengthen their relationship

The alarming statistic is holding steady: half of all marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. Clearly, many couples need help with developing conflict resolution skills. The Power of Two incorporates proven ideas about marital communication, adds important techniques developed from the author's clinical work, and further demonstrates the pioneering concepts set forth in her 1990 book From Conflict to Resolution. The book also includes a comprehensive compendium of dialogue strategies that couples need to use in order to open up to each other, start making decisions together, and deal effectively and respectfully with their common problems and needs.

Thirteen chapters (each with an opening photograph) cover speaking, listening, dialoguing, "fix-it" talk, anger, "clean-up" talk, shared decision-making, conflict resolution, "support and solace" talk, intimate talk, fun talk, and sex.

With important advice on developing the skills for constructive dialogue, The Power of Two takes its rightful place in the lineup of important books on relationships alongside Deborah Tannen's You Just Don't Understand and Judith Wallerstein's The Good Marriage.

"When two individuals form a couple, the power of their union equals far more than one plus one. The immense energy they generate can become a source of love and nurturance, of strength and joy -- or a cause of unending tension, life-constricting resentments, and unfulfilled personal potential". -- from the book
