Everyone wants to improve and deepen their relationships. This book explains the development of psychologically healthy, fulfilling, interpersonal relationships involving effective communication, empathic emotional intimacy, shared transformational development, and constructive conflict resolution to achieve this aim. A section on improving society through enhancing interpersonal relationships is included. The authors anticipate that this book will be of keen interest to professional relationship counselors, including marriage counselors, family counselors, and conflict mediators.
