The Power of Two Workbook teaches the communication and conflict resolution skills that can enable you to enjoy a great marriage. With this practical step-by-step guide you'll learn how to evoke interest, not antagonism, when you speak about sensitive issues; and to listen without becoming defensive. You'll discover secrets to effective dialogue, techniques for cleaning up after inadvertent "toxic spills," and ways to ensure that apologies yield healing--plus you'll learn the three-step waltz of smooth shared decision-making, how to keep the anger ceiling low, and strategies for converting moments of anger into powerful opportunities for learning and growth.

With each chapter you'll acquire key skills for a happier, more gratifying marriage. A host of engaging practice exercises give you a chance to repeat each skill often enough that it can become yours.

Review:

"Susan Heitler and Abigail Hirsch have written a gem of a book that will help couples, whether newlywed or long-married, break out of the marital gridlock. No matter how solid your marriage, the skills and strategies clearly outlined here offer do-able ways to unscramble problems with which you've struggled--as well as new ones that crop up along the way."
--Margery D. Rosen, contributor to the long-running column, "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" in Ladies Home Journal



"The Power o f Two Workbook is wonderfully sensible and user-friendly. It's aimed at real people coping with the real problems of living together--particularly new couples, and those with pretty good marriages and very good intentions but a faulty instruction book on life and relationships. This workbook is wise, optimistic, and a lot of fun."
--Frank Pittman, MD, author of Grow Up! How Taking Responsibility Can Make You a Happy Adult



"This workbook is deceptively fun to fill out. The exercises help to develop skills that can make all the difference between a difficult marriage and a loving partnership."
--Marilyn Van Derbur, former Miss America and author of Miss America by Day

About the Author:

Susan Heitler, Ph.D., a Denver clinical psychologist, specializes in helping couples build strong marriages. Her book for couples The Power of Two, which has been published globally in five languages, forms the basis both for this workbook and for Power of Two Marriage Skills Workshops (see www.PowerOfTwo.org). Dr. Heitler's earlier book From Conflict to Resolution and her master therapist video The Angry Couple are staples in marriage counseling training programs, and her self-help audiotapes (see www.TherapyHelp.com) have helped thousands of listeners. Dr. Heitler and her husband, blessed with four children and ever-increasing numbers of grandchildren, have enjoyed over thirty years of strong and loving marriage.

Abigail Hirsch is a teacher and math curriculum writer who now is completing her Ph.D., as a clinical psychologist. She used her teaching and curriculum-development background to cocreate The Power of Two Marriage Skills Workshops and then this workbook, both of which augment the book The Power of Two, written by her mother, Dr. Susan Heitler. Abigail, her husband, and their two young sons live with Abigail's paternal grandparents on a tree farm.
