Great Insights May 22, 2008
Attachment theory provides valuable insights on why we react the way we do - and why our spouses react the way they do. Understanding why is a basic first step in restoring harmony and security in a marriage. Putting into practice what we learn is an entirely different matter. The suggestions provided are very practical but are increasingly difficult as marriage partners have retreated from one another. If your marriage is on the rocks you probably won't be able to fix it on your own, no matter how good the advice.
Tool for Counseling Jan 22, 2004
My wife and I lead the marriage ministry in our church and do much of the marriage counseling. We have used a number of Christian resources to help couples. Our approach is focused around Emotional Focused Therapy. This is the best resource we have found that captures the "process" of how to apply this concept to a realtionship. (works with kids, co-workers, etc as well) If a couple is committed to healing the marriage, and will learn and apply the skills outlined in the book--the marriage can be healed.
one of the better books on marriage Nov 6, 2003
I have read many books on marriage but found this one to be different and most helpful. It outlined how my wife and i fight, and then showed us a way out of our fight cycle. We are beginning to learn how to stay emotionally connected, despite our differences. I highly recommend it. We are reading through this book at our monthly couples group - and find the questions at the end of each chapter very helpful.
A great book that can save your marriage Oct 13, 2003
When you get married, your partner becomes a secure base, a safe haven; someone you can trust to listen and care about your concerns. The secure base is at the heart of your marriage. Whenever this is shattered, the marriage begins failing and, if the wound is not repaired, the relationship can eventually fall apart. This book does a wonderful job of explaining how to identify the wounds in your marriage and how to--practically--go about healing them. I have recommended it to many of my clients and they simply love it. If your marriage is struggling, you may want to check this book out.
safe enough to connect Jun 7, 2003
This book is about how the arguments between you and your spouse keep you both from emotionally connecting. This book helped my wife and I realize that our conversations focused on trying to get each other to see our own side. We never stopped to understand each other. I defended myself against her accusations until I finally emotionally withdrew and put my emotional energy into work and my own interests. She kept at me saying that if she didn't I would never pay attention to her. My wife and I have been fighting like this for years. Safe Haven Marriage has helped us understand our fight cycle, why we fight and what we can do to change the way we share our views. It helped me see that when my wife's 'porcupine quills' come out and she is mad at me, underneath she is trying to get me to understand her and draw me in. 'Safe Haven Marriage' has helped us understand each other. A great book with great stories. I highly recommend it. It has helped us 'emotionally connect' for the first time in a long time.
