Publisher Comments:

The bestselling guide to transforming an intimate relationship into a lasting source of love and companionship, with a new foreword and chapter from the author

In Getting the Love You Want, Dr. Harville Hendrix presents the relationship skills that have already helped hundreds of thousands of couples to replace confrontation and criticism with a healing process of mutual growth and support. This extraordinary practical guide describes the revolutionary technique of Imago Relationship Therapy, which combines a number of disciplines — including the behavioral sciences, depth psychology, cognitive therapy, and Gestalt therapy, among others — to create a program to resolve conflict and renew communication and passion.

Getting the Love You Want describes the three stages of intimate relationships, provides illustrative case studies and gives helpful recommendations to overcome the obstacles in those stages to create a stronger bond between couples. First, he chronicles the stages of most relationships — attraction, romantic love and the power struggle — and suggests ways for partners to identify the conflicts associated with each of them. Then, he explores methods for achieving a "Conscious Marriage," where the early phases of romance are rekindled and confrontation is slowly replaced by growth and support. Finally, Dr. Hendrix incorporates these ideas into a unique therapeutic course, offering a series of proven exercises that lead to insight, resolution and revitalization. Step by step, he describes how to communicate with greater accuracy and sensitivity, how to let go of self-defeating behaviors, and how to focus energy on meeting each partners' needs.

With Getting the Love You Want couples in any stage of a relationship can resolve their conflicts and achieve mutual emotional satisfaction.

writer grandma, September 1, 2011 (view all comments by writer grandma)
After two lousy marriages and forty wasted 40 years of misery, this book helped me find happiness - from my marriage. It's not about gimmicks; it's about insight into why we choose the one we want to marry - and why it goes so wrong. It does take some digging into painful areas, but it's so satisfying in the end. Harville Hendrix's wise insight teaches you how to get what you want most in life - to heal old wounds and to finally be happy. Your spouse will love it too, because you learn to help each other heal and be able to get what you both want out of life, whatever that is for you.

I also recommend using something like the helpful "releases" in the Sedona Method to help you through some of the more painful feelings that come up when working with this book. Whenever we felt painfully stuck, knowing how to release helped us be able to move forward. Alternately, you can find a therapist who specializes in Imago therapy to be a guide, although we haven't tried that ourselves.

Every marriage would be blessed to start with this book to avoid problems down the road.

(We are not connected with any of the above in any way - just really like them.)
