Today's special guest, Jonathan Robinson, a renowned psychotherapist and bestselling author, states that everyone really wants care, understanding, and empathy in their relationship. However four relationship mistakes often get in the way of receiving what we want. He calls these four culprits The Four Horseman of the Relationship Apocalypse. They are: Denigration, Denial, Dismissal and Distraction.
If you and your partner are experiencing discord or distance, then there is an easy way to head off relationship breakdown well before circumstances become dire with a variety of simple exercises that Robinson cites in his new book MORE LOVE, Less Conflict, A Communication Playbook for Couples.
In this book he offers more than 30 simple-easy-to-implement, highly practical communications strategies to dissipate the tension, create more connection and ramp up the love. And even suggests ways to get a resistant partner to participate.
Robinson--who appeared on Oprah and the national morning shows several times-- counsels couples and conducts workshops on communication, leadership and teambuilding with Fortune 500 companies. He is also the author of the bestselling Communication Miracles for Couples.
