Product Description


Drawing on his forty years as a marriage and family psychiatrist,
Dr. Fitzgibbons presents a book that can bring selfknowledge
and healing to struggling marriages. It will help
couples to identify and resolve the major emotional conflicts
that weaken their relationships and hurt their marriage. It is
very timely because of the epidemics of selfishness, anger,
pornography and infidelity in marriage today.

This work is unique because it draws upon the field of positive
psychology, which focuses on growth in virtues by the
spouses. It is the first book on strengthening marriages by
a mental health professional that incorporates the luminous
writing of St. John Paul II on marriage and empirically proven
forgiveness therapy.

The book demonstrates the benefits from a commitment to
a mission of personal growth in acknowledging one’s fault,
receiving and giving forgiveness and cultivating virtues. This
healing process is both fulfilling and demanding.
Whether you are newly engaged, recently married, or
married for many years, the conflict-resolving strategies
described in this book—the habits of a healthy marriage—
can help you to protect your relationship from the emotional
storms that often lead to quarrelling and mistrust, and sometimes
to separation and divorce.
