When a relationship heads south, most people tend to point the finger of blame at their partner. But years of study show that you really should be pointing that finger at someone else: yourself.

According to psychotherapists Dr. Daniela Roher and Dr. Susan E. Schwartz, our very own bodies -- our physiological wiring, biochemical makeup, and past childhood memories -- are hardwired to trigger issues in our romantic relationships, sabotaging our love lives when we least expect it.

Until you understand what's going on "under the hood," in your body and your mind, warn Drs. Roher and Schwartz, you'll end up repeating the same relationship mistakes over and over again.

Dr. Daniela Roher is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with nearly forty years in a career that has spanned three countries and two continents. Dr. Susan E. Schwartz is a Jungian analyst trained at the C.G. Jung Institute, who lectures worldwide. Together, they have co-authored the new book,Couples at the Crossroads: Five Steps to Finding Your Way Back to Love (January 2012). To learn more, visit www.CouplesAtTheCrossroads.com.
