Format: Paperback
Dr. Broder's book is more than 'interesting'. It pulls you in and makes you take a deep look at any troubling relationship. Although the focus is on love relationships; marriages and romances, the assessment and analysis can also be applied to friendships and work related discontent. Dr. Broder is always optimistic and has a 'can do' attitude whether you choose to stay or to leave.
He does not let you 'beg' the question, but elicits what to keep in mind when you are not yet ready to make the decision to stay or go! Either way there is 'work' to do: affirmations, visualizations, note taking and checklists.
The reader is invited to read this text cover to cover or to go to the chapters that apply today, once you have completed the self-assessment. "Can Your Relationship be Saved?" is also a reference book to go back to time and time again to review just how far you've progressed.

Format: Paperback
> Book Review
> Can Your Relationship Be Saved?
> One of the latest self-help series is aimed at clients who are experiencing troubled relationships. The work is by Dr. Michael Broder, a highly experienced and visible (radio, TV) marital and relationship therapist who practices in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania not Mississippi). The title "Can Your Relationship Be Saved? How to know whether to Stay or Go" describes the content well which systematically focuses on first assessing the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship, then explores the pain of staying vs. the pain of leaving, then the consequences of either decision.
> A major focus is on feelings of ambivalence in persons in troubled relationships. This may also be translated as conflict and involves all the typical combinations - approach/approach,
avoidance/avoidance, double approach/avoidance etc. each of which leads to indecision and unhappiness and instability in the relationship. Dr. Broder helps chart pathways through the ambivalence and provides guidance in deciding whether to stay in the relationship or to leave. He weaves in meaningful case examples illustrating problems, insights and solutions based on his extensive experience.
Dr. Broder offers a 50 item true/false test to help readers evaluate their relationship and aid in determining whether their relationship can be saved. He raises interesting and critical questions the answers to which he provides in detail and with supporting examples. For those of us who are more scientifically inclined, I wish that he had provided statistical analyses for this instrument as well.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on June 3, 2002
Format: Paperback
Written by an experienced psychologist, media personality and popular speaker Michael S. Broder, Can Your Relationship Be Saved? is a no-nonsense book about when a relationship needs to end, and when it is capable of weathering trouble with perseverance, balance, and possible professional help. Specifically intended for the friends and family of those in troubled relationships, as well as people who don't understand why their relationship is in such strife, Can Your Relationship Be Saved? is a thankfully direct and steady take and complicated human situations recommended for the non-specialist general reader concerned with salvaging and strengthening their relationships, friendships, and familial bonds.
