So... what I REALLY meant...

Better Communication Better Relationships

Authored by Alison Poulsen PhD

How you communicate on a daily basis determines whether a relationship will become life-enhancing and fulfilling, or deteriorate into frustration and disappointment. Tone of voice, choice of words and body language make all the difference in the quality of your relationships. Similarly, your sense of self and wellbeing are formed by the totality of your thoughts and inner dialogue.

This book is a collection of over 200 examples of how you can transform common yet ineffective thoughts and statements into effective communication. Each example includes a brief psychological explanation and illustrates the skills needed to communicate successfully.

By recognizing how you may be participating in certain relationship patterns, you can exercise the primary power you have in your relationships - namely to decide how you will respond in a given situation. By gaining self-empowerment and enhancing your communication skills you will transform the quality of your relationships and live the life you desire.
