Books on Family:
Sins of the Family : Becoming the redemptive generation
by Beverly Hubble Tauke, LCSW

Ms. Tauke, a clinical social worker, has written an easy to read, informative book that focuses on turning individuals' loveless experiences into cherished lives by applying eight positive time-tested habits. What makes her book different from many others in this category is the confluence of traditional family therapy with religious writings and practice. Ms. Tauke wants more for her readers than liberation from negative, life destroying traits; she wants them to experience healing through a "vibrant, authentic, God-driven, metabolized faith" (p.11).

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work : A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert
by John M. Gottman (Author), Nan Silver

Gottman, the director of the Gottman Institute, has found through studying hundreds of couples in his "love lab" that it only takes five minutes for him to predict--with 91 percent accuracy--which couples will eventually divorce. In this book, he shares the four not-so-obvious signs of a troubled relationship that he looks for, using sometimes amusing passages from his sessions with married couples. (One standout is Rory, the pediatrician who didn't know the name of the family dog because he spent so much time at work.)

Partnering : A New Kind of Relationship
by: Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone

Partnering is cooperative and replaces the classic hierarchical, patriarchal relationship where dominance was the main theme. Partnering means many things, but most of all we see it as a joint venture in the exciting business of life. It means that you move from a life in which you were the "sole proprietor" to one in which you are a full and equal partner with someone else.

Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples
by Harville Hendrix

As a result of his research, Hendrix created a therapy he calls Imago Relationship Therapy. In his books, he combines what he's learned in a number of disciplines, including the behavioral sciences, depth psychology, cognitive therapy, and Gestalt therapy, to name just a few. He expounds upon this approach in Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples. His purpose in writing the book, he says, is "to share with you what I have learned about the psychology of love relationships, and to help you transform your relationship into a lasting source of love and companionship."
