About Joseph J. Luciani
Check out Dr. Joe's daily Self-Coaching blog at www.selfcoaching.net / Twitter @SelfCoaching101 / facebook www.facebook.com/selfcoaching
He's run four New York City Marathons, hunts dinosaur bones in Wyoming, and practices yoga and meditation. Dr. Joe Luciani lives the life he wants...but it wasn't always this way.
Years of struggle with anxiety and self-doubt led to a career in psychology with the hope of finding relief. And that relief came with the discovery that anxiety and depression, if treated as habits rather than as mental illnesses, can be dealt with simply and directly without endlessly having to dissect the "whys" of the past. As with someone trying to quit smoking, you don't have to know why you took that first cigarette--you simply have to chip away at the here-and-now habits (doubts, fears, and negative thinking) of today.
If you too want to connect with the joys of life, then you need to know what you're doing that feeds your problems and what you can do to starve them instead. Self-Coaching--it's as simple as that.
Dr. Joe has been a practicing clinical psychologist for more than thirty-five years. He's the internationally best-selling author of the Self-Coaching series of books, published in nine languages. He's written articles and been featured in numerous national magazines and newspapers, including O, The Oprah Magazine, Redbook, USA Today, Fitness, Health, Shape, and Body and Soul. He appears frequently on national TV, radio, and the Internet.

There's no doubt about it: every conflict in every relationship involves two people with two different perceptions, and every solution requires two partners to arrive at a single shared perception. You can't repair a damaged relationship by yourself, and you can't change your partner into someone else. Does that mean the situation is hopeless? Absolutely not!
In Reconnecting, Dr. Joseph Luciani, the celebrated author of the renowned Self-Coaching series, introduces a proven, practical method you can follow to encourage your less-than-cooperative partner to join you in a meaningful healing process, even if you have to take the first steps on your own.
Dr. Luciani begins by helping you evaluate your own level of insecurity and, using his Self-Talk technique, do something to improve it. He shows you how to use Self-Talk to become a catalyst for change in your relationship by eliminating your contribution to the problem. You'll identify your own personality patterns and use Self-Talk to let go of personal baggage, stop listening to what hurts you, and see the problem as a whole.
Next, you'll learn how to apply Catalytic Self-Coaching to your relationship. You'll find out what it means to create a relationship vacuum, and you'll start working with Self + Self = Us Portraits. You'll also discover how to risk trusting each other and to begin coaching each other away from destructive habits and toward a more truthful and loving relationship.
This eye-opening and life-changing guide offers constant support on your journey toward a more loving and rewarding relationship. You'll find plenty of prescriptive advice to help you make sense of your own personality patterns and cope with the anxiety and depression that often accompany difficult relationships. Dr. Luciani's success stories of patients who have changed their lives will help you realize that you're not alone and there is hope.
Complete with a valuable discussion of the essential principles of successful relationships and how to put them into action every day, Reconnecting is the resource you need to break free of destructive habits and create a new, more secure relationship that brings you the companionship, commitment, trust, and true love you need.
