You hear and read a lot about ways to improve your relationship. But if you've tried these without much success, you're not alone. Many highly reactive couples-pairs that are quick to argue, anger, and blame-need more than just the run-of-the-mill relationship advice to solve their problems in love. When destructive emotions are at the heart of problems in your relationship, no amount of effective communication or intimacy building will fix what ails it. If you're part of a 'high-conflict' couple, you need to get control of your emotions first, to stop making things worse, and only then work on building a better relationship. The High-Conflict Couple adapts the powerful techniques of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) into skills you can use to tame out-of-control emotions that flare up in your relationship. Using mindfulness and distress tolerance techniques, you'll learn how to deescalate angry situations before they have a chance to explode into destructive fights. Other approaches will help you disclose your fears, longings, and other vulnerabilities to your partner and validate his or her experiences in return. You'll discover ways to manage problems with negotiation, not conflict, and to find true acceptance and closeness with the person you love the most.

In A Broken Therapists Guide to Completeness, Mark Vegh explains how so many of us live with a fragmented perspective due to hurts and traumas of the past. We try to hide from our pain or push it away, but it only makes us rigid, cautious, and defensive. Or rather we stew on the past bumps and bruises, becoming resentful and bitter. Vegh uses the funny, the serious, and the irreverent to show you the wizard behind the curtain of moving beyond crisis, a little concept that encapsulates the things he found that worksits called dialectics.
