Overview

Unlike other books that deal with broken relationships or mending fences Do I Stay or Do I Go? is truly unique in its true nuts-and-bolts, down-to-earth approaches to facing problems within existing relationships. In a highly practical format, Dr. Occhetti works the reader through a series of steps that place heavy emphasis on accepting one's own responsibility for bad relationships — making personal accountability key to coming to a decision. Replete with actual case studies, the book provides real word examples that will assist the reader in unraveling their own personal strengths which will enable the steps necessary for resolution —as well as the weaknesses that could hold one back. Complete with checklists and surveys that aid the reader in selecting alternative ways of working through problems prior to deciding upon dissolving a relationship, the book is very easy to read and put to work. Not letting any stone unturned, the author even addresses one of the most scary aspects of today's Internet: cybersex. In addition, there is coverage of other very contemporary topics such as adultery, second marriages, and stepchildren. Learn how to deal with negotiations and how to handle depression. As one reviewer wrote: "The book is fair, unbiased, and stimulates readers to take responsibility for their own choices, whatever they may be."
