Psychotherapist Dina Bachelor Evan claims that 98 percent of the couples who come to her for counseling stay together, giving credence to the advice she offers in Break Up or Break Through.
Written specifically for a gay and lesbian audience, its rules for good relationships evoke universal self-help themes, such as respecting boundaries, overcoming personal limitations, and creating intimacy. With its breathing exercises, “Spiritual Relationship Personal Inventory” tests, and upbeat chakra-talk, this volume should appeal to New Age couples, gay or straight.
Dina Bachelor Evan, PhD, MFCC, is a twenty-year veteran psychotherapist and executive coach who specializes in individual and couples counseling. She is also the author of Love Always and Love from the Inside Out.
