Editors Note "Overflowing with insights, advice and exercises which add up to the solutions that may save a failing marriage or make a good relationship better than ever."--Dennis Wholey
Editors Note 1 One of today's most influential psychologists tells how effective communication can restore solid, harmonious relationships.
Annotation According to Aaron Beck, many couples therapy books tend to focus on lack of communication in the relationship rather than the problem of miscommunication. This problem occurs when partners have lived together long enough that each begins to practice what Beck refers to as "presumed mind reading," i.e. one presumes to understand exactly what the other person is feeling in any given situation, when they actually have no idea. LOVE IS NEVER ENOUGH is very thorough in its examination of these and many other perils that go with the territory of maintaining a healthy long-term relationship. Others include: anger, ambiguity, defensiveness, the evil "shoulds," and the reduction of sex. The cognitive psychological approach is recommended here, with chapters devoted to the development of better conversational skills, setting rules, and showing respect for differing perspectives. With Beck's sensible advice pointing the way, unhappy couples have the opportunity to stop seeing each other as annoying, boring, or insensitive and to start seeing each other for what they really are: beautiful, deeply complex individuals able to add an endless amount of romance, excitement, and comfort to each other's lives.
