Happy publication day to Michelle Brody and her book, Stop the Fight!: An Illustrated Guide for Couples: How to Break Free from the 12 Most Common Arguments and Build a Relationship That Lasts.
Michelle Brody, PhD, is an executive coach and clinical psychologist with over 20 years of professional experience as a practicing therapist and a specialist in resolving relational conflict. In her many years of working with couples, she often found that drawings were the most effective route to that “aha!” moment of clarity and comprehension. Couples were able to literally see what was causing, and thus their way out of, fights. With Stop the Fight! , she has applied that practice to the 12 most common fights that she sees couples getting stuck in.
With over 300 illustrations clearly depicting the cycles we get stuck in during fights, Dr. Brody has tackled such familiar conflicts as the Partner Improvement Fight, the “You Don’t Care About Me” Fight, and the Difficult Relatives Fight. Where many self-help books fail to engage, Stop the Fight! makes dealing with fights easier and (dare we say) more fun than ever. Below, watch the book’s trailer to get an even better understanding of the book’s one-of-a-kind concept.
One of the fights which Dr. Brody specifically addresses in the book is the Difficult Relatives Fight. With the holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to face this fight head on (before you’re arguing over stuffing recipes with your in-laws). Dr. Brody clearly addresses the sensitive position both parties occupy in this fight–taking into consideration one’s need to please both the family they grew up with and the new family they are establishing by being a part of a couple. Most importantly, Dr. Brody stresses, is trying to see the dilemma the other party is facing.
Check out the book for a stress-free holiday season!
