In thoughtful prose, Susan Halpern explains how to communicate with care in order to strengthen and increase our loving connections. The principles provided in the bookspeaking from the heart, stating intentions, and deep listeningenable readers to navigate difficult encounters. Halpern draws on her years of experience as a psychotherapist, wife, and mother to suggest possible, scripted solutions and positive outcomes for a wide range of situations: a partner who needs to talk about the irritations of joint living, parents of an adult child who requires unexpected financial support, grandparents who don't know how to intervene, siblings who disagree about politics or religion, and couples in times of crisis, illness, affairs, and divorce. An essential book for finding one's way back to intimacy from conflict, nagging discomfort, and anger,Finding the Wordsteaches methods of responding, negotiating, and compromising.
