From the Author
"Conflict Resolution for Couples - the Final Edit" is the 2011 updated edition of the book that was first published in 2005 (simply "Conflict Resolution for Couples"). There were two other editions put out in 2007 ("the Revised and Expanded Edition") and 2009 ("the Revised Edition"). With new information, and better ways of organizing the material, it was important to me to continue to revise my initial efforts into something I could be confident with. By attaching the label of "the Final Edit", I think I'm at a good resting place to let the book make it on its own now.
Just be sure if you're looking to buy used that it's "the Final Edit" edition.
