9 Critical Mistakes Most Couples Make

David Hawkins

$36.99

Paperback

Author, speaker and 30-year veteran clinical psychologist Dr. David Hawkins, says that conflict in any relationship is inevitable but being able to resolve it is key. Thus, in a new book, NINE CRITICAL MISTAKES MOST COUPLES MAKE, Dr. Hawkins lists the mistakes that unravel the fabric of a marriage over time. Using practical examples from his 30 - year clinical practice, he describes these dangers and presents communication and behavioural styles that can resolve issues and strengthen marriages.

Using the familiar pattern of raising a concern and offering practical solutions, Dr. Hawkins encourages us to "stop playing God" (being critical and judgmental), "stop kicking the dead horse" (bringing up old issues), "stop living in the trenches" (become your spouse's best fan), "stop living with paper fences" (set healthy boundaries), "stop using the untamed tongue" (words matter), and "stop being distant" (building intimacy).
