Add a quote "Best book on relationships I have read in years." Doctor Robert Washington,psychologist
Reseda, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
True life stories about relationships, dating, love and romance. Enthralling, gripping, fast paced!
Psychotherapist/author Carole H. Field has written 8 fleshed out short stories directly from her patient population, has placed "red flags" in the margin, and follows the interesting stories with detailed explanations of the red flags. It is a positively wonderful tome as it traverses both sides of the brain: fun, eye-opening reads and then an understanding of whatcha'just read--for once. As Field quotes,
"How often do we read a book, see a play or movie and totally identify with the character BUT do not understand her (our) motivation in these life choices or repetitive behaviors? That is why I wrote this book-to finally understand the intricacies of our irrational, unexamined sides."
Dating down is defined as staying in relationships that are clearly below our integrity levels; below what we deserve; below what we know is best--yet, hanging in there for dear life. Why?....read the book.
These stories are directly from Field's patient population.
"I could not continue to watch this behavior year in and year out without finally exposing the pain it engenders. I have given it a name and therefore a form. Now I want to expose it into the general consciousness so as to eradicate it."
Interestingly, there is also a workbook to enhance the literal or figurative classroom of growth.
"My readers say one of two things," Field says. "Either they cannot put the book down or they see themselves all over the pages--and they can't put the book down. That is the first necessary response to growth. I like it."
A new, improved, groundbreaking take on humanity--although controversial--written with insight and warmth.
