Publisher's Summary

What if I told you there was work? I’m sure you wouldn’t believe me, and for good reason!

It’s easy to see how difficult relationships can be. If there was a totally effective method for happy, healthy relationships out there, surely someone would have packaged it up and sold it by now, right?

What is Couples Therapy and What is Couples Counseling? “Couples therapy” and “couples counseling” usually mean the same thing. There is no difference between them on a technical level.

While couples therapy can be a great way to reconnect with your partner or a magic recipe for making a relationship end the differences between you, there are many ways to make sure you keep the spark alive and the relationship healthy without seeing a professional. There are many resources out there that draw from theories or research in couples therapy.

It’s never too late (or too early) to start putting a little more effort into your relationship. If you would like to improve your connection, choose one or two of the activities and exercises described below to practice with your partner.

How to Know If You Need Marriage Counseling

If your marriage is having problems, you definitely should not wait too long to seek professional help. It may be hard to find the right counselor with the skills to help your relationship, but they are out there and willing to help. There are ways to to find a counselor specializing in marriage or couples therapy. You may have to meet with more than one to find the right fit. There are also ways to gauge if counseling will actually work for your marriage. Fortunately, we do have some information on the types of couples that get the most, and the least, from marriage counseling.

Here are some questions to consider:

  • Did you marry at an early age?
  • Did you not graduate from high school?
  • Are you in a low-income bracket?
  • Are you in an inter-faith marriage?
  • Did your parents divorce?
  • Do you often criticize one another?
  • Is there a lot of defensiveness in your marriage?
  • Do you tend to withdraw from one another?
  • Do you feel contempt and anger for one another?
  • Do you believe your communication is poor?
  • Is there a presence of infidelity, addiction, or abuse in your marriage?

If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, then you are statistically a higher risk for divorce. It does not mean that divorce is inevitable, it may mean that you have to work much harder to keep your relationship on track. Those couples who have realistic expectations of one another and their marriage, communicate well, use conflict resolution skills, and are compatible with one another are less at risk for divorce.

Don't Wait to Get Help

If you think your marriage is in trouble, do not wait. Seek help as soon as possible. Plan to budget the money and time in this treatment. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get your relationship back on track. Be sure to find professional couples counseling or attend a marriage course or weekend experience as soon as warning signs appear.

gives you a host of ideas

We all struggle in our relationship sometimes and rather than just ignore the problem and find down the line it's grown to the point that the relationship is on the rocks, do something about it now. Mindful relationship Habits gives you a host of ideas on how to get your relationship of the rocks, and better still, how to stop it going there in the first place.

breaks things down in a simple and effective way

This book is a quick and very well thought out. It really breaks things down in a simple and effective way that's easy to understand and follow. If it was listened and implemented into everyday life between a couple there's no way it wouldn't improve the relationship.

a really excellent guide

This is a really excellent guide to improving, sustaining, creating a happy marriage. I wish I had listened this book earlier in life, it's loaded with practical wisdom. The basic premise is being intentional and paying attention to what you’re doing within your relationship - - and being nice and sweet and kind and patient and understanding and creative, the list goes on. This is isn't a book you listen just once; you go back and pick it up and again to remind you what to practice...

specific interventions.

There may be better volumes for those who seek to learn the fundamentals of couple therapy or for those who want to learn the basics of working with trauma survivors. However, for the experienced clinician Johnson provides a concise guide that pinpoints precise clinical leverage points and a theoretically coherent rationale for specific interventions.

I thought this book was great for both new and seasoned therapists who are hoping to work with couples. I feel confident using this book to work with couples knowing that the approach reflects Christian standards and is empirically supported. This book has everything from theory, current research, clinical experience about couples, and even specific and practical ways to help couples.

A good compact book for beginners. It was very well explained and terms were defined as well. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a basic but thorough background that is also a short book.
