I use a book called "high conflict couples" that teaches how to regulate emotion so that conflicts do not get out of control. I have had a great deal of success using the book "How we Love" with couples for the last four years. I systematically, step by step lead couples through the powerful process of uncovering their attachment styles, and how their combination of attachment styles creates a predictable pattern of behavior. We look back at how these attachment styles were developed in the couple's family of origin. They develop understanding and compassion for how each partner in the relationship came to relate to others in this manner. Finally they learn how to engage in such a way as to help each other heal from these past attachment wounds. Instead of being your partner's enemy, you become their ally in the healing journey.
