This course is new or has been updated recently.

This is an excellent communication skills workbook for anyone in a serious relationship. The lessons are clear and to the point. Participants have the opportunity to read, reflect, write and practice the skills of effective communication. From quarrels over household chores to arguments about career changes, conflict is a part of every relationship—even healthy ones.

The key to a long-lasting relationship isn't to avoid fighting, but rather to see conflict as an opportunity to work through issues. By resetting the negative default communication patterns participants may have acquired early in life, they can work toward reestablishing and strengthening bonds. In 'Love More, Fight Less', Gottman-certified relationship coach, Dr. Gina Senarighi shows readers how to use the tools and strategies for communicating effectively, rebuilding trust, and repairing past hurts.

'Love More, Fight Less' addresses common pitfalls in relationships around issues of intimacy, career, finances, family and home matters, and friendships with other people and how to navigate them.
