Whether you are trying to save your marriage, develop couples conflict resolution skills or repair your relationship after an argument, the couples communication in this card deck will immediately improve the quality of your relationship.
The couples communication exercises in this card deck will guide you through the most challenging moments with your partner, while simultaneously developing your effectiveness with all relationships.
It is easy to communicate well and express love when there is affection, appreciation, play and general goodwill flowing between you. Ironically, when the going gets rough and you want to lash out, prove you are right, shut down or just run...when you are each hurt, angry, scared and vulnerable...these are the most crucial times to demonstrate your love and respect, which you do primarily through effective, caring communication.
In studying thousands of couples, renowned "Marriage Scientist" Dr. John Gottman has determined that a couple's ability to repair the relationship after a rupture is the most substantial indicator for relationship success or failure. However, you cannot adequately learn these skills by reading about or seeing them done, only by directly doing them with your partner. I designed the Relationship Repair Game for this purpose: each of the 78 cards can be directly applied amidst a conflict to create more self awareness, compassion, clarity and connection with your partner.
