Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples (Paperback)
In a new chapter and afterword, we learn the key ways in which Imago Therapynow practiced by more than two thousand therapists worldwidehas evolved since its inception. One development lies in Hendrixs discovery that helping couples express their anger merely reinforces negative and critical thought patterns rather than defusing them, so todays Imago therapists have shifted focus toward helping couples eliminate all negativity from their daily interactions. This fundamental change has proven invaluable in couples therapy, and the importance of eliminating negativity has been integrated throughout the text, allowing readers of the 2008 edition to benefit from Hendrixs ongoing discoveries during his last two decades of work.

I looked at this book from a different perspective than most readers. I didn't read it as a person in need of relationship advice. Rather, I read it as a person who has been happily married for 22 years. My question was, how closely did the advice in this book match what I was doing successfully?.....A bestseller since 1988, the book is separated into 3 sections.....-the first part talks about how unmet childhood needs can affect your future relationships.....-the second part talks about a marriage that can fulfil your unmet childhood needs in constructive ways.....-lastly, part three is the exercises. Here you'll be taken through a series of exercises that you can do at home that have been actually used in the author's practice. They're easy to do and involve writing......Well, that's a rough synopsis that should give you a little bit of a feel as to how the book is set up- and what its about......So how closely did the advice in this book match what I have been doing all this time to create a successful 22-year marriage? Perfectly- both the book and I promote the idea that you have to work at your marriage to make it work! And perhaps that's the best piece of advice of all: find constructive ways to make you marriage better- and that's one thing this book most certainly succeeds at. Other self-help books I liked include "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World".Read More
