"I'm prepared to kick a hole in the wall of the pain-ridden, unhappy maze you've gotten yourself into, and provide you clear access to action-oriented answers and instructions on what you must do to have what you want," says Dr. Phil. His aim is to expose and eliminate the saboteurs that cause senseless damage to already-fragile marriages, and, like an emotional root canal, to replace them with values he says provide positive results. If you follow Dr. Phil's strategy, he will lead you on a precise journey to uncover your heart and then share it with your partner as part of taking the "risk of intimacy."
Dr. Phil leads you to "reconnect with your core" in the first five steps of his seven-step strategy. By no means a quick fix, there are in-depth and rigorous questionnaires, surveys, tests, and profiles that require a "brutally candid" mindset, with such fill-in-the-blanks as "List five things that today would make you fall out of love with your partner." With this internal work accomplished, you'll then move on to reconnecting with your partner during a two-week, half-hour-a-day short course. As a "dyad," you and your loved one take turns giving monologues on topics such as "The most positive thing I took away from my mother and father's relationship was..."
Once the "reconnection" has been established, Dr. Phil says the work shifts to a management role, as relationships are always a work in progress. Dr. Phil humorously refers to his own marriage throughout the book, sharing his mishaps and victories in learning to accept and enjoy what he sees as fundamental but complementary differences between men and women. --John Youngs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book will help you to get your focus in the right places to change and/or better your relationship.
We all think, I guess, that love is easy and as long that we love one and other things will work out, but they don't.
He has some very interesting ideas, methods and approaches and the book is easy and interesting to read.
Makes me think about the real role I play and responsibilities I have that I had not considered before. Easy to understand.Published 1 month ago by Cynthia Jean Schweiger
As much as I read, I loved. I like his program, too - the educational parts, not the parts that show-up the dummies, or the dummy-in-us-all.Published 1 month ago by David Komisar
Ok so this is practical advice. However I don't think a person who's already having issues should depend on this book for advice. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Tanja M. Church
