Everyone has anxiety. Some cases are worse than others. Some people just get an overwhelmed feeling and others take it out on their loved ones. I suffer badly and my husband suffers equally from my aftermath. I have reccomended this book to others to see if it can help get a better perspective. I hunk that it would be a great book for couples as a work book. It has great exercises. Awesome book!!!

I expected a lot more from this book. If you have anxiety and have read resources on it before, chances are this is not new information. I also didn't find it helpful for my husband in regard to dealing with my anxiety.

One of the things I do to prepare for the high holidays is to take stock of all my major relationships. Husband, daughter, step-adults, friends. This book was recommended by a friend. It provides useful tools and exercises for those who have anxiety issues. It relies on guided imagery, and breathing exercises to help find balance. And it works. I was not a fan at first. A little too repetitive (that's actually good) and sometimes too hocus-pocus sounding. Its major flaw is that it is aimed at ...more

This book offers many useful techniques for dealing with the physiological effects of anxiety and provides scripts for engaging in dialogue with your non-anxious partner; however, I was disappointed that this book offered no techniques for preventing anxiety in the first place. This may be a good place to start for couples that have not been exposed to any sort of couples therapy techniques, but it was not what I was looking for at this stage in my personal growth. My suggestion, in terms of ...more

“Daniel Siegel, a neuroscientist who has extensively studied interpersonal bonds, emotion, and self-regulation, writes of attunement (Siegel 2007, 290): “[S]uch resonant states feel good as we feel ‘felt’ by another, no longer alone but in connection. This is the heart of empathic relationship, as we sense a clear image of our mind in the mind of another.” 0 likes
