Jocelyn and Aaron Freeman are creators of the Couples Workshop and Empowered Couples University. Here they aim to give couples the insights and skills necessary to fight for their relationship instead of with each other. Since conflict is unavoidable and often even desirable, the Freemans demonstrate how listening to one another in disagreements can give each partner more clarity. The authors offer an abundance of real-life examples to illustrate dealing with triggers, active listening, and post-conflict “response-ability.” A tool for working with a spouse’s communication personality type is particularly helpful.
VERDICT This is an excellent resource for couples who are willing to work on their relationship.
