Book Description

Oct. 15 2003
'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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource May 22 2004
By A Customer
This workbook is a valuable guide to improving couples' communication skills. It provides examples of the typical mistakes couples make when responding to each other and suggests ways to recognize and avoid those pitfalls. I particularly liked the emphasis on listening, as well as learning to respond to your partner in a constructive way. The exercises are a useful way for couples to start changing negative patterns in their communications. In sum, this is a great resource for anyone in a relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Workbook! July 17 2011

I bought this workbook on advice from my counselor and I love it. My fiance and I dedicate 10-20 minutes to it whenever we get the time and have found it very useful in helping us to communicate even difficult situations. It has some great pointers and typically will start with a brief description of problem ways of communicating and how to remedy them. Then it has you complete short exercises to practice the skill they've just introduced. I would highly recommend - I think everyone could benefit from learning different ways to communicate more effectively.

This book was just okay for my husband and I. We ended up going to couples therapy anyway, but this was something to do when we didn't go on certain weeks. Exercises are also only ok. I suggest reading the table of contents and seeing if its something you want to do. Glad to have as a backup in case of emergencies.
