Product Description

Review

"Overflowing with insights, advice and exercises which add up to the solutions that may save a failing marriage or make a good relationship better."-- Dennis Wholey, author of "The Courage to Change"When the complete history of medern psychiatry is written, I believe Aaron T. Beck's name will take it's place alongside the great pioneers: Freud, Kraepelin, Bleuler, and Jung. All helped to move psychological suffering from the darkness into the penumbra."-- Martin E. P. Seligman, Ph.D."Beck is the anointed father of cognitive therapy . . . In "Love Is Never Enough, [he] goes back to the well of distorted thoughts and says they're also the source of most relationship problems."-- "Philadelphia Magazine"It's practical. It's wise. It's down to earth. It should help many marriages."-- Dr. Helen Singer Kaplan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By A Customer on 26 July 1996
Format: Paperback
Dr. Beck's book isn't just another pop-psych guide to saving your marriage.
It is an extraordinarily helpful resource by one of the founders
of cognitive psychology. Each of the chapters illuminates how marital
partners create conflicts; how they can understand their problems;
and how they can mobilize their resources for making effective
change. A sensible, sensitive book for those striving to create
a more fulfilling marriage.

Format: Paperback
Cognitive therapy is based on the premise that emotions come out of unexamined, habituated thought reactions. These thoughts and the emotions they foster can be deconstructed and, hence, defused of their power to poison all human interactions, not just those between wife and husband. A brilliant book--unpretentious, well-written, truly helpful. The astute reader will see all sorts of parallels to contemporary linguistic theory. Do yourself a favor: throw all your New Age psychobabble books in the garbage and read Dr. Beck.

This book is an excellent resource for practitioners wanting to set homework for clients, for couples wanting to change the ways they operate and for individuals wanting to improve their relationships with significant others. Highly recommended.

When you can't look at your partner for being so angry at them and you constantly think their motivations are against you then you need this book.I got a copy for 50p in a charity shop,read it on a long train journey and drew round all the paragraphs that applied to me. Went home and changed MY behaviour and saved my marriage....best 50p I ever spent.
