More About This Book

Overview

Robert Johansen's and Todd Gaffaney's breakout book, MAKING LOVE-How to Create, Enjoy, and Sustain Intimacy, is a beautifully written, easy to understand, clinically proven concept that teaches the reader how he or she can create and sustain love for their partner.
MAKING LOVE is an extremely important book for today's times, given that a staggering sixty-seven percent of couples married after 1990 are divorced. Ironically, marriage counselors divorce at the same alarming rate as the national average. While these failed relationship statistics are troubling, there is hope for a better tomorrow.
Author's Johansen and Gaffaney's research evolved into a groundbreaking and clinically tested model that gives readers the tools to thrive in their marriage or relationship.

Blurbs:

"The authors have brought a refreshing and new perspective to the difficulties and complexities of the intimate relationship. Making Love offers a uniquely inspiring view on how partners can grow love for each other. I highly recommend it."

Sherry Lewis, PhD. LCSW

Drs. Johansen and Gaffaney have devised a very powerful model for effectively intervening in couples lives to improve their intimacy. Their model reduces strife while teaching relating partners intimacy-building communication techniques. This book will benefit professional therapists and lay people alike.

Diana Haberland, M.A.
Marriage and Family Therapist Private Practice


I had the great opportunity to put the principles contained in this book to a scientific test for my doctoral dissertation. The results of my research were very positive to say the least. But perhaps even more importantly, I have applied these principles with clients in my practice and have seen first hand how effective they are. By offerring an organizing perspective on the complex data couples bring to therapy, the model reduces anxiety in clients and treating therapists. The model changes our traditional views on love and marriage. I strongly recommend it.

Ian T. Johansen, PhD Clinical Psychologist Private Practice Author, Private Practice
