Overview

Often, when a woman's life appears to be unmanageable to her, it is actually the effect of multiple destructive relationships. Although she may be unaware of it, she may be involved in destructive relationships with a demanding boss, overbearing co-workers, a verbally abusive son, highly critical parents, friends who treat her as a "doormat," or an emotionally abusive mate. While she would never categorize her life as "abusive," she may be chronically tired, have frequent physical ailments, prone to outbursts of anger that seemingly come from "out of the blue," feel hopeless, anxious, resentful, and helpless. Destructive Relationships is the first book to empower women in this situation to take charge of their lives and end the cycle of unhealthy relationships.

    From Destructive to Constructive: Building Better Relationships

    It¿s not always the catastrophic event that destroys our relationships; indeed, the most perilous of dangers can be those that do subtle, insidious damage ¿ often over time rather than all at once. In Destructive Relationships, Dr. Jill Murray inspects with us the beliefs, feelings, and actions that serve as foundation for our connections to others. She identifies the symptoms, causes, and consequences of destructive relationships. And, in the process, she provides for the reader a toolbox of skills and attitudes necessary to build positive, healthy relationships. Through a variety of case studies, Dr. Murray illustrates the warning signs of destructive relationships. Importantly, she defines and describes the many types of abuse that can occur in a relationship: physical, emotional, sexual, and verbal. She demonstrates clearly that these abusive relationships can cause immediate or long-term, slight or devastating damage ¿ to us and to those with whom we connect. And on an optimistic, empowering note, the author provides for the reader a blueprint for changing the dynamics of current and future relationships. Destructive Relationships is an important book for anyone interested in establishing and maintaining healthy, positive relationships. Readers will learn to identify and apply those attitudes and skills that best nurture healthy, positive relationships with others. In doing so, they will better equip themselves to build interpersonal connections that are safe and solid ¿ physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
