This introductory textbook is for students who are interested in learning about and establishing healthy marriage, family, and intimate relationships. With divorce rates high and relationships fragile, books and courses are needed that help students address important issues regarding relationships. The readers of this text examine many important and relevant issues through the lens of theory and research and do so using a written format that is readable, understandable, and easy to apply to oneís life. It was written so that each chapter has information that readers will find helpful as they attempt to establish and maintain meaningful, healthy relationships. There are questions throughout each chapter that help readers focus not only on the material but also on how the material relates to their present and past relationship and family situations. The text provides material on the research of John Gottman, the object relations theory of Harville Hendrix, the solution- focused approach of Michele Weiner-Davis, and the PREP approach to conflict management of Markman, Stanley, and Blumberg. These and other topics discussed are very relevant to studentsí concerns and are addressed in greater depth than found in most other texts. The emphasis is not just on couple relationships but also on family relationships. Therefore, in this book there is extensive coverage of family systems theory and the influence of family rules and family structure on the development of families. There is also material on how change produces transitions in family life that must be assimilated into the family structureófor example, when a couple has their first child. Thus, both couple and family issues are addressed throughout the book. For instructors who want to focus their courses on marriage, family, and intimate relationships, this book would be an ideal choice.

How couples can restore trust and repair love relationships Even the strongest relationship can be eroded by common, everyday breaches of trust. A small lie about a purchase, a cover-up for a forgotten birthday--each takes a bite out of trust. Over time, intimate confidences are weakened and the foundation of trust begins to crumble. It is Dr. Block's firm belief that when couples feel emotionally safe with each other, their relationship is more passionate, open, uninhibited, and sexually alive. Filled with inspiring case studies from Dr. Block's private practice, this book offers couples an innovative, solution-oriented approach to restoring trust and repairing love relationships shattered or eroded by betrayal. Includes chapters covering: Recognizing the Signs of Trust . . . and Mistrust Dance Away Lovers: The Trust-Mistrust Relationship Jealousy, Lover's Hell The Frontier of Trust: Sexual Fidelity Restoring Trust "Through a spirited, imaginative exploration of love relationships, Block develops a useful roadmap for those who want their relationship to be meaningful." --Daniel Acaoz, founder, American Journal of Family Therapy

Untamed Yourself is about bringing women home to themselves in a grounded, practical and inspirational way centered around the belief that, "Everything you've ever needed has always been inside of you." It's about getting out of your head and into your body, creating better boundaries and using discernment. I write about not only relating to yourself in a more loving, peaceful and powerful way, but learning to communicate with others from a place of compassion with an open heart for more positive outcomes, greater intimacy, and deeper connection. Finally, the book also teaches you how to balance, integrate and harness the often unknown or misunderstood gifts in both your masculine and feminine energies. After being a personal trainer for years and teaching women how to work out, I realized the importance in my own life and that of clients of working in. That inspired me to create Wild Soul Movement in 2013. From there through my blog, a Facebook group with 3500+ members, YouTube videos, free online challenges, paid programs, courses, coaching, and a podcast, I became intimately familiar with the struggles of 21st century women. Some of those struggles include: - lack of trust, a need to control everything, and exerting an exhausting amount of force, effort and energy to make things happen all the time. - body images issues ranging from never feeling comfortable in your skin to intense eating disorders and chronic self-loathing. - terrible boundaries, incessant people pleasing, putting yourself last and the stress, resentment, low energy and even illness that comes with it. - highly unsatisfactory relationships in all categories, romantic, family, professional, and friendships. - shame, low-self-esteem and harboring secrets, or emotions you don't feel safe to share with anyone-for fear of being judged, abandoned or labeled as "crazy," "bitchy," "high maintenance" or "needy." We live in an odd time. Western women, especially, have every right and capability of western men and that's confusing. We've been cultured and conditioned to behave, basically, like lovelier versions of men-which often leaves us burned out, resentful, stressed to the max, and sometimes, in identity crises, totally disconnected from our bodies, our souls, and the truth of of who we really are. Untame Yourself is the guidebook I wish I'd had several years ago when I began the process of awakening to who I really am and developing a personal relationship with my own femininity. I've filled its pages with practices, tools, advice and stories to help you have an easier, more graceful experience than I did. I also aim to save you the time of figuring much of it out as you go as I did, too.
