Navigating the challenges of long-term commitment takes effort—and it just got simpler, with this empowering, step-by-step guide to communicating about the things that matter most to you and your partner. Drawing on forty years of research from their world-famous Love Lab, Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman invite couples on eight fun, easy, and profoundly rewarding dates, each one focused on a make-or-break issue: trust, conflict, sex, money, family, adventure, spirituality, and dreams.
Interactive activities and prompts provide motivation to stay open, stay curious, and, most of all, stay talking to each other. And the range—from the four skills you need for intimate conversation (including Put Into Words What You Are Feeling) to tips on being honest about your needs, while also validating your partner’s own emotions—will resonate, whether you’re newly together or a longtime couple looking to fortify your bond. You will discover (or rediscover) your partner like never before—and be able to realize your hopes and dreams for the love you desire and deserve.
Gottman provides the tools you need to make your relationships thrive. In The Relationship Cure, Dr. Gottman:
- Reveals the key elements of healthy relationships, emphasizing the importance of what he calls “emotional connection”
- Introduces the powerful new concept of the emotional “bid,” the fundamental unit of emotional connection
- Provides remarkably empowering tools for improving the way you bid for emotional connection and how you respond to others’ bids
- And more!
Packed with fascinating questionnaires and exercises developed in his therapy, The Relationship Cure offers a simple but profound program that will fundamentally transform the quality of all of the relationships in your life.
Every parent knows the importance of equipping children with the intellectual skills they need to succeed in school and life. But children also need to master their emotions. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is a guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally intelligent children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will equip parents with a five-step "emotion coaching" process that teaches how to:
* Be aware of a child's emotions
* Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching
* Listen empathetically and validate a child's feelings
* Label emotions in words a child can understand
* Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation
Written for parents of children of all ages, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will enrich the bonds between parent and child and contribute immeasurably to the development of a generation of emotionally healthy adults.
Dr. Gottman, author of the New York Times bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and his wife and collaborator, clinical psychologist Julie Schwartz Gottman, PhD, have pored over the research along with bestselling coauthors Douglas Abrams and Rachel Carlton Abrams, MD. Together, they have written this definitive guide for men, providing answers on everything from how to approach a woman and build a connection with her to how to truly satisfy her in bed and know when the relationship is on the right track. The Man’s Guide to Women is a must-have playbook for how to play—and win—the game of love.
This breakthrough book guides you through a series of self-tests designed to help you determine what kind of marriage you have, where your strengths and weaknesses are, and what specific actions you can take to help your marriage.
You'll also learn that more sex doesn't necessarily improve a marriage, frequent arguing will not lead to divorce, financial problems do not always spell trouble in a relationship, wives who make sour facial expressions when their husbands talk are likely to be separated within four years and there is a reason husbands withdraw from arguments—and there's a way around it.
Dr. Gottman teaches you how to recognize attitudes that doom a marriage—contempt, criticism, defensiveness, and stonewalling—and provides practical exercises, quizzes, tips, and techniques that will help you understand and make the most of your relationship. You can avoid patterns that lead to divorce, and—Why Marriages Succeed or Fail will show you how.
John and Julie Gottman, world-renowned for bringing an evidence base to couples therapy, report here the results of a second empirical revolution in understanding couples and families. This change is not based on their guesswork, but on state-of-the-art science. The book you hold in your hands finally completes the old general systems theory of the 1960s, which metaphorically described processes but did not actually research them.
A new general systems theory and therapy is presented here, one which will have profound implications for powerful clinical work with both couples and families. This new theory is based on 45 years of careful basic scientific research with thousands of couples and families, including synchronized observational, interview, physiological, and questionnaire data.
The Gottmans have studied some families for as long as 20 consecutive years. Their work has led to their highly replicated ability to precisely predict the future of relationships, relationship happiness, and whether couples will divorce or not with as much as 94% accuracy. Their empirical work has also led them to develop and test a theory of specifically what makes relationships work. Each construct in this theory is precise and measurable and it is all written about and described here.
This book presents an original new way of understanding relationships and families. Both theoretical and highly practical, and it will help clinicians become more effective in their everyday work.
Psicologo noto in tutto il mondo per i suoi studi sul ruolo delle emozioni nella crescita e nel rapporto tra genitori e figli, John Gottman mostra in questo libro come i genitori possono diventare dei bravi "allenatori emotivi": servendosi di test, esercizi ed esempi tratti dalla vita quotidiana, l'autore ci insegna a riconoscere le emozioni dei figli, a comprendere le ragioni alla base dei loro comportamenti e a guidarli verso uno sviluppo autonomo delle proprie idee e dei propri talenti.
Con chiarezza e semplicità, Gottman ci accompagna attraverso le fasi cruciali dello sviluppo di bambini e ragazzi e offre le linee-guida essenziali per trasmettere ai figli le qualità necessarie per affrontare al meglio la vita.
Die meisten Partnerschaftsratgeber sind für Frauen geschrieben – für John Gottman ist das, als würde man eine Operation am offenen Herzen ausführen – nur leider am falschen Patienten. Denn wie er in seinem bekannten „Love Lab” herausgefunden hat, sind es eher die Männer, die Beziehungstipps benötigen: Was Männer sagen oder tun beziehungsweise was sie nicht sagen oder nicht tun, ist der entscheidende Faktor, ob eine Beziehung erfolgreich ist oder scheitert.
John Gottman und seine Frau Julie Schwartz Gottman haben in über 40 Jahren Tausende von Paaren und ihre Interaktion erforscht und dabei zwei der größten Beziehungsrätsel gelöst: was wir attraktiv finden und wie wir eine glückliche Ehe führen. Ihr neues Buch, das sie zusammen mit den erfolgreichen Autoren Doug Abrams und Rachel Carlton Abrams geschrieben haben, widmen sie nun ganz ihren männlichen Lesern. Dabei ist „Beziehung ist Männersache” kein Pick-up-Manual, sondern ein fundierter Ratgeber, der jedem Mann hilft, erfolgreicher mit Frauen umzugehen – sei es in einer bestehenden Beziehung oder bei der Suche nach der passenden Partnerin: Was finden die meisten Frauen bei Männern attraktiv? Wie kann Mann die Skills verbessern, die sie sich wünscht? Das und vieles mehr (wie besserer Sex und größere Zufriedenheit in der Partnerschaft) haben das Autorenteam in einem praktischen und dabei lockeren Buch zusammengefasst.
