Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The human brain has a primitive warning system that was built to protect us from predators. It alerts us to potential threats to our survival, including a disturbance in our connection to our partner. #2 The process of falling in love is not always smooth, and can lead to the couple feeling as if they are pulling in opposite directions. Over time, this can lead to the couple feeling as if they are not safe in their relationship. #3 The pair experienced their first notable upset three months into their relationship. Eric arrived at Donna’s house to take her out for a romantic evening. She seemed tense, and when he asked her what was wrong, she began recounting how her boss had unfairly overloaded her with work that afternoon. #4 When someone triggers you, your body reacts before your mind does. Your body gets tense, and your mind races with thoughts or wants to do something - like run away. This is the flight response. When you are triggered, your stomach gets tight, and your breathing becomes shallow. You stop listening to the hurtful input and start defending yourself.

The award-winning author helps you build relational literacy by giving you the principles and tools to understand and practice healthy ways of relating. Relationships are complicated. Yet it’s an unfortunate reality that while most of us have to learn complex geometry that we’ll probably never use, we don’t get a single formal lesson in how to relate to others. In this comprehensive guidebook, Joy reveals the common psychological dynamics that underlie all kinds of relationships: with a romantic partner, friends, family members, colleagues—in short, with anyone in any situation. Understanding these dynamics can enable you to make all your relationships healthier and more resilient, and help you contribute to creating a better world. Drawing on the most relevant research as well as on her own extensive experience as a psychologist, Joy explains how to strengthen your “relational immune system” to resist not only interpersonal stressors but also largely invisible yet potentially devastating societal stressors like racism and sexism. With this understanding, you can cultivate relationships that consistently reflect core moral values and honor the dignity of everyone involved. Resilient relationships are a source of joy and fulfillment for those who are in them—and they also support the thriving of the organizations and communities of which we all are a part. “A wise, practical, and well-researched template for creating healthy relationships of any kind . . . I recommend this book to anyone wishing to expand their social-emotional intelligence!” —Susan Campbell, PhD, author of Five-Minute Relationship Repair

"The most crucial relationship advice book since Men Are from Mars." —Erin Meanley, Glamour.com Talk to Me Like I'm Someone You Love is a brilliant interactive relationship tool that can help couples stop arguing and begin healing. Couples therapist Nancy Dreyfus hit upon this revolutionary practice during a particularly angry couples-therapy session in which a wife's unrelenting criticism of her husband was making him more and more emotionally withdrawn. Suddenly, Dreyfus found herself scribbling on a scrap of paper, "Talk to me like I'm someone you love," and gesturing to the husband that he should hold it up. He did, and within seconds, the familiar power differential between the two shifted, and a gentler, more genuine connection emerged. This revised edition features two new sections—one on making love and another on deepening trust—containing over 25 new "flash cards for real life," written statements that hold the power to express what we wish we could say to the person we love but for which we can't find either the right words or the right tone in which to say them. Each of the statements in this book is accompanied by "field notes" from the author that explain when, why, and how to use the statement, as well as real-life stories from the author's practice.
