Summary
We all have someone we can't get along with--a friend or colleague, a boss, an obnoxious neighbor, a teenager, or maybe a loving but irritating spouse. Here, cognitive therapist Burns presents Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy, a radical new approach that will help you transform troubled, conflicted relationships into successful, happy ones. This book presents an entirely new theory of why we have so much trouble getting along with each other. It's filled with helpful examples and brilliant, user-friendly tools such as the Relationship Satisfaction Test, the Relationship Journal, the Five Secrets of Effective Communication, the Intimacy Exercise, and more, so you can enjoy far more loving and satisfying relationships with the people you care about.--From publisher description
