In this book, relationship expert Gary Smalley shows how people are designed for relationships: with others, with themselves, and with God. It's part of their relational DNA. When those relationships are balanced and healthy, life is good. But too often our clients live with broken, strained relationships, and the pain can be unbearable. Too often they unknowingly damage the most important relationships in their lives with destructive habits. Too often they don't take care of themselves.

In this groundbreaking book, Gary Smalley and his colleagues unveil a new paradigm for understanding what goes wrong in our relationships. But more important, they offer proven ways to break the destructive relationship dance is often done.
