Build more compassionate, accepting, and loving relationships with acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
Picture-perfect storybook romances don't exist in real life. Couples fight. Feelings of love wax and wane through the years. And the stress and tedium of everyday life and work can often drive a wedge between even the most devoted couples. So, how can you reignite passion and intimacy in your relationship, cultivate greater understanding and compassion between yourself and your partner, and bring the joy back to your love life?
In this fully revised edition of ACT with Love, therapist and world-renowned ACT expert Russ Harris shows how developing psychological flexibility—the ability to be in the present moment with openness, awareness, and focus, and to take effective action in line with one's values—can help you and your partner strengthen your relationship. Also included is new information on attachment theory, mindfulness and self-compassion techniques, and assertiveness and boundary-setting skills.
You'll learn how to: let go of conflict, open up, and live fully in the present; use mindfulness to increase intimacy, connection, and understanding; resolve painful conflicts and reconcile long-standing differences; and act on your values to build a meaningful relationship. If you're looking to increase feelings of intimacy, love, and connection with your partner, this book has everything you need to get started—together.
