(Sue Johnson, Ph. D) – Recommended by Amy Manuel Weins
This is a popular book among many therapists dealing with couples as it beautifully explains why we crave our partners and why our relationship with them is more than just a relationship, it feeds our innate need for attachment. Stemming from John Bowlby’s attachment theory, Dr. Johnson explains how our attachments with our partners are of the utmost importance and how we can enhance our relationships by emotionally connecting with each other. Dr. Johnson gives seven conversations that will help any couple grow more intimate together from a true emotional connection. The exercises and conversations presented in this book are easy to follow and, if both partners are willing to complete them, they will see a change in the intimacy of their relationship.
