Overview

Anger is the most destructive force in personal relationships. Add today's problems of job pressure, terrorism and economic hardships to everyday stressors, and it's easy to understand why we're all a bit on edge. Unfortunately, the person on whom we're most likely to take out our frustrations is our significant other.

Thousands of couples with anger-related issues used 1999's Red Hot Relationships to help forge healthy, loving and secure relationships. Cooling Red Hot Relationships takes the reader inside Kirkland and Lindstrom's couples' workshop dialogues again, showing how partners can learn to cope with present-day challenges. The authors, who have contributed articles to publications as diverse as Woman's Own and the Journal of Systemic Therapies, identify and illustrate the new and old anger triggers to which we all are susceptible, guiding couples in working past their conflicts and issues. Using a simple, effective four-step plan, Cooling Red Hot Relationships teaches couples to transform destructive or stressed relationships into satisfying, mutually rewarding loves.

New chapters focus on financial problems and anger management, fear of war, terrorism and the anger it creates and the demands of caring for elderly parents and children simultaneously. The doctors remind us that while anger is the number one threat to happy relationships, we can create passionate and rewarding relationships despite today's pressures.
