Deepening Your Personal Relationships

by: Dr Barry J. Hammer

Everyone wants to improve and deepen their relationships. This book explains the development of psychologically healthy, fulfilling, interpersonal relationships involving effective communication, empathic emotional intimacy, shared transformational development, and constructive conflict resolution to achieve this aim. A section on improving society through enhancing interpersonal relationships is included. The authors anticipate that this book will be of keen interest to professional relationship counselors, including marriage counselors, family counselors, and conflict mediators. Readers interested in enhancing their personal relationships and gaining insight into transformational self-help and social transformation will also find this volume helpful. Deepening Your Personal Relationships provides original, meaningful, and transformational insights. These insights can be especially helpful in understanding how to overcome the separate ego's mostly subconscious fear of and resistance against emotional intimacy and good communication, as well as understanding how good relationships can produce enhanced levels of spiritual development, psychological healing, self-understanding, creative functioning, inner peace, happiness, and fulfillment in life.
