9780060159566: Love Is Never Enough: How Couples Can Overcome Misunderstandings, Resolve Conflicts, and Solve Relationship Problems Through Cognitive Therapy

This book explores the most common problems in marriage: the power of negative thinking; how the initial idealizing of a partner can lead to disillusionment; how important life-changing decisions are never discussed; how anger and hostility develop from miscommunication. These problems are approached through "cognitive therapy", in which thinking through and reasoning are used to counteract the poor communication which so often erodes relationships. Dr Beck shows how effective communication can restore and strengthen the ties and bonds between couples.

Review:

"Overflowing with insights, advice and exercises which add up to the solutions that may save a failing marriage or make a good relationship better."-- Dennis Wholey, author of "The Courage to Change"When the complete history of medern psychiatry is written, I believe Aaron T. Beck's name will take it's place alongside the great pioneers: Freud, Kraepelin, Bleuler, and Jung. All helped to move psychological suffering from the darkness into the penumbra."-- Martin E. P. Seligman, Ph.D."Beck is the anointed father of cognitive therapy . . . In "Love Is Never Enough, [he] goes back to the well of distorted thoughts and says they're also the source of most relationship problems."-- "Philadelphia Magazine"It's practical. It's wise. It's down to earth. It should help many marriages."-- Dr. Helen Singer Kaplan
