Publisher's Summary

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 extraordinarily 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.

Dr. Hendrix describes the three stages of intimate relationships, provides illustrative case studies, and gives recommendations to help couples create a stronger bond between them. Step by step, he offers advice on how to communicate with greater accuracy and sensitivity, how to let go of self-defeating behaviors, and how to focus energy on meeting each partner’s needs. With Getting the Love You Want, couples in any stage of a relationship can resolve their conflicts and achieve mutual emotional satisfaction.

    "Really helped me understand relationships"

    I was recommended this book to better help me understand why we search for the partners that we do. It's brought some things to light for me and I couldn't be happier that I bought it. It's ideals of how to deal with past anger is very helpful as I think no one should have to deal with holding onto painful past experiences. It can be draining mentally and emotionally, letting go is a freeing experience and this book has definitely helped me get there. Thank you Harville Hendrix

    "There's a reason this work is a #1 best seller"

    revolutionary revelations. In this Short abridged version of the actual 12 hour work, Hendrix hits Home on his key virtually confirmed theories on how and why love relationships can work out (and why and how often they don't ). This is a must read. Everything you need to know to succeed in love and marriage is in this book. You'll have to pause and rewind and ponder this content . It's not a light quick read. toward the end (chap 14 on) you'll need to sink your teeth into it and roll up your sleeves. twice through should be your minimum. I'm going for thirds shortly, but moving up to the full version, for the Rest of the story.

    "Excellent Work"

    I had not read or heard Dr. Hendricks' work before, though I did hear OF his Imago concept.

    His reading was top notch & the concepts & exercises he presented seemed like very good ideas that I could see had potential of working well to help his clients.

    "Helpful even for singles!"

    Definitely benefitted from this classic and I'm not even engaged or married! But this has given great insight into myself and what I am drawn to in a partner. Hendrix's own narration is solid and easy to listen to.
