This book is a wonderful, easy to read guide to help partners better manage their own emotions that flare up in relationship conflict and teaches couples how to manage problems through negotiation. Using the dialectical behavior therapy approach, the book focuses on one’s emotional reactivity, development of new emotional responses, learning effective communication skills, and integrating techniques that enhance communication. This is an ideal book for people who are interested in building and maintaining positive, healthy relationships, who might feel that their emotions feel out of control or challenging, and for the couple that feels that they are “always fighting”. This book is available at Amazon, or can be ordered from Northfield Public Library.
