Getting the Love You Want: a Guide for Couples.

By Harville Hendrix

Review

Written by an educator and a therapist, whose investigation of why his own marriage dissolved led him to start looking into the psychology of love. Marriage, he ultimately discovered, is the "practice of becoming passionate friends". As a result of his research, Hendrix created a therapy he calls Imago Relationship Therapy. In it, he combines what he's learned in a number of disciplines, including the behavioral sciences, depth psychology, cognitive therapy, and Gestalt therapy, to name just a few. Divided into three sections, the book covers "The Unconscious Marriage", a marriage in which the remaining desires and behavior of childhood interfere with the current relationship; "The Conscious Marriage", a marriage that fulfils those childhood needs in a positive manner; and a 10-week course in relationship therapy, which gives detailed exercises for you and your partner to follow in order to learn how to "replace confrontation and criticism ... with a healing process of mutual growth and support". Offers a realistic approach to strengthening your marriage.
