9780071395182: Naked Intimacy: How to Increase True Openness in Your Relationship

One of America's foremost couples therapists offers expert advice on rekindling relationships through "naked intimacy"

Naked Intimacy is for everyone who yearns for an intimate relationship and wonders why it seems so elusive. It is for couples who are experiencing emptiness and loneliness in their relationships and dream of rediscovering the deep intimacy that existed in the early days of the relationships.

Joel D. Block, one of the founders of the modern self-help movement, entices the reader to take his or her clothes off emotionally with a love partner­­a daring and courageous act, to be sure, but one that ultimately brings new vitality and eroticism to a relationship. Based on interviews with more than 200 people whose experiences speak directly to readers, concerns about love, happiness, fulfillment, and sexuality, Naked Intimacy is an important work that challenges love partners to do what it takes to achieve even greater levels of intimacy in a relationship.

From the Back Cover:

Moving from indifference to passion in love relationships

Each of us longs to be loved and accepted for the person we truly are. Love relationships, at their best, provide an opportunity to discover and nurture our authentic selves. Ironically, our need for validation--or fear of rejection--is often so strong that we become guarded from the most important person in our lives: our love partner. The soul-baring intimacy and willingness to know and be known that made the beginning of love so passionate and exciting is instead replaced with feelings of apprehension, loneliness, and alienation. We may wonder if it is possible to regain genuine connection. Written by a leading couples therapist, Naked Intimacy illuminates the true meaning of intimacy and shows us how to achieve and maintain it over the long term.

Joel D. Block, Ph.D., a renowned psychologist with three decades of experience working with couples, examines the many factors that hold us back from real love. He offers concrete ways to overcome the fears that keep us from communicating honestly and staying emotionally connected with our partner, and he explains how to avoid wasting time and energy trying to change or "fix" each other.

Joel D. Block, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist specializing in treating couples, a Diplomate of the American Board of Professional Psychology, and an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. A senior psychologist on the staff of the Long Island Jewish Medical Center, he has written fourteen books and has appeared on several TV shows, including all of the national morning news shows. Dr. Block lives in Huntington, New York.
