Infidelity or even the fear of infidelity can cause break ups or undermine an otherwise healthy relationship so badly that it degenerates into a jealousy-ridden armed camp. Mira Kirshenbaum's I Love You But I Don't Trust You is designed to restore trust into endangered love relationships without opening new wounds or creating recriminations. A valuable restorative in time for Valentine's Day from the author of Too Good To Leave Too Bad To Stay; a trade paperback and NOOK Book original.

Whether one is recovering from a major betrayal, a lack of openness, or a history of hurts, psychotherapist Kirshenbaum (When Good People Have Affairs) argues that couples can avoid the mistakes that prevent healing and feel secure with each other once again. She uses her own and others' experiences as well as psychological research to show how mistrust enters a relationship (e.g., unequal power), how trust can be restored, and how to safeguard a relationship so it will never happen again. Kirshenbaum also includes an assessment of whether a relationship can be saved. This book will offer a secure foothold to anyone who is feeling betrayed but wants to hang in there.
