Overview

"A concise, illustrated conflict-resolution handbook...It portrays everyday scenes...that readers will find instantly recognizable...A clear and readable introduction to building healthier relationships through better communication." – Kirkus Reviews

Are you sick and tired of angry arguments?
Are you tiptoeing around to avoid any possibility of a disagreement?

In reality, having disagreements is a given when it comes to relationships. But, when you don't have the skills or experience to navigate the inevitable rough patches, conflicts often become angry, explosive affairs. This can lead to resentment and less happiness in your relationships.

What if you had a simple guide that offered you the tools you need to reduce unresolved conflict and lead to more happiness?

Enter Peaceful Encounters, a short, engaging and exceptionally practical illustrated guide to bringing peace and reason to everyday interpersonal disagreements. Drawing on three decades as a licensed marriage and family therapist, author John Goulet uses dozens of lighthearted but powerfully instructive cartoons to introduce a sensible, easy-to-follow game plan for resolving arguments.

Better yet, this easy-to-read guide is less than 100 pages long! It's not a book that you have to slog through and end up putting away after one or two chapters.

In Peaceful Encounters, you'll learn:

• Simple but highly effective tools for resolving differences
• What your own conflict-management style is, and why that's important
• It's okay to feel anger, and how to manage it to everyone's benefit
• How to stop resenting and start enjoying your relationships

Most importantly, you'll learn that, disagreements, when handled effectively,
can lead to stronger, deeper and more harmonious relationships.
