When a conversation starts to cycle out of control, happy couples know how to steer their discussions back on course or postpone to a later time. Unhappy couples, by contrast, don’t recognize when discussions are entering dangerous waters--meaning they’re reaching the point of no return. 

In this show, I show how to use my top three First Aid Tools to cool down a partner who’s losing it so you can turn your ship around. I also help you to recognize when it’s time to “abandon ship” and abort mission, as well as how to re-approach your issue so that your next discussion will be successful. Join me as we sail into smoother waters on the Love Boat called Relationship SOS.
For a complete guide to all my relationship conflict resolution techniques, see my book "Till Death Do Us Part," which you can find out more about on AskDrLove.com along with 1000's of relationship, dating, and sex advice articles on every imaginable issue.
