Our relationships – with friends and family or in the workplace – have a huge impact on us all. They can enrich our lives, giving us great pleasure and happiness as well as a positive sense of identity, or cause us untold misery and stress.
World-renowned psychotherapist Erik Blumenthal brings his clear, conversational style to offer practical advice and straightforward principles to help us better understand ourselves and others. Through bite-sized chapters featuring real-life situations involving partners, neighbours, family members, and mere acquaintances, Blumenthal picks through our actions and reactions to show us why we do and say what we do, and how we can all choose to turn our relationships around.
So whether you’ve experienced trouble around the kitchen table, over the garden wall, or at your desk, To Understand and be Understood will change the way you look at yourself and others, improve your everyday dealings with the people around you, and transform the relationships that matter the most.
