Good communication is the key to successful relationships. However, in marriage and other intimate relationships both men and women complain that they stop being heard and fail to communicate with the other person. The resulting conflict only leads to pain, frustration, silence and anger. This book aims to show how to articulate your true self and transform your relationships. It contains advice on: making yourself heard; developing an authentic voice that reflects the true you; increase your capacity to give and receive love by communicating in new ways; speaking with honour and personal integrity even when the other person behaves badly; and breaking out of established bad patterns of communication, such as passive-aggression, criticism and defensiveness. There are also case histories and strategies to follow.

"The Dance of Connection tackles the most difficult problems we face with the people who hurt us: What is the "two step" that will transform any conversation?How do we find our voice when we are rejected or cut off? And why won't the person who has harmed us apologize?How do we take a conversation to the next level when we feel desperate?What positive steps can we take when the other person is wearing us down with criticism, negativity, excuses, demands, or irresponsible behavior?How do we put an insensitive parent on the hot seat?Lerner reveals a startling new definition of what it means to have an "authentic voice" -- one that runs counter to the automatic ways we try to speak our truths.
