Break the Cycle: A Comprehensive Guide to Overcome Chronic Relationship Struggles
Few things are more frustrating than repeating the same fight with your partner. Playing out the same disagreement about money, parenting, sex, or household chores may leave you exhausted, cut off from the person you want to feel close to. While conflict in any relationship is inevitable, healing is possible. With In Each Other's Care, Stan Tatkin shares a hands-on repair manual that will help you discover how arguments get triggered, why they keep happening, and what you can do to get better at communicating what you want without the drama.
Drawing on his vast experience as a couples therapist, Tatkin uses the concept of secure functioning—a two-person psychological system of teamwork, full collaboration, and cooperation based on fairness, justice, and mutual sensitivity. This form of unionizing “takes time to learn,” Tatkin says. “And still, the rewards are awesome and make the effort worthwhile. Secure functioning benefits you, your partner, your family, your friends, everything, and everyone.”
Throughout In Each Other’s Care, Tatkin offers targeted lessons, sample dialogues, and heartfelt wisdom. Through this life-changing practice, you will be able to:
• Identify the source of unhappiness in your relationship
• Learn techniques for preventing problems before they occur
• Heal the emotional wounds of the past
• Transform conflict and struggle into win-win outcomes
• Renew broken connections and return to intimacy
Whether you’ve been in a relationship for years or are just beginning the journey, In Each Other’s Care is a wonderfully supportive guide that will show you how to work through even the most contentious topics with compassion and respect.

Thank you, Sounds True Publishing, for the advance reading copy.
First of all, this book offers a lot. Please consider taking your time and tackle one topic at a time. I can assure you that it will be so worth it.
The book deals with the topic of most common relationship conflicts in two broad main sections under which several chapters deal with further details and examples.
I do find most of the topics and subtopics mentioned in the book are inevitable to discuss which I would say skip any chapter at your own risk.
Do pick up this book when you sincerely want to know what to do or what to say when someone close to you wants to discuss about their relationship dilemma. I find this book rather helpful and it has prepared me in a manner on how to reduce more harm and how to deal most of these scenarios when they happen.
Do look out for this book when it hit the stores.
In Each Other's Care: A Guide to the Most Common Relationship Conflicts and How to Work Through Them is a relationship book with a difference.

It is easy to read and while the author never takes sides or blames one party it does get straight to the heart of every problem. The concept of secure functioning is explored and methods to improve communication are tackled for all problems. The emphasis is on teamwork, working together and caring for each other. It is one of the best books on the subject I have read and is definitely different from the standard offerings on the market. It is a brilliant read for all couples whether in difficulty or not. It will definitely improve your relationship in some way. Very highly recommended.

Relationships often stumble over the same ground and patterns of engagement. In this wonderful book Mr Tatkin encourages a coupling, rather than a stand off. Written with so much wisdom and kindness the reader is encouraged / reminded to embrace the teamship of your coupling and work together in your communication and solutions rather than working against one another.
A beautiful reminder that chose closeness and kindness .
