For some people, an argument with a loved one is a catastrophe, a sign that a relationship must surely be over, for others a heated discussion is a way of letting off steam, a way of ensuring that passion is kept alive. But what is 'normal' communication for couples? How can you get past the raised voices or silent disapproval, to listen and understand what is really being said by your partner? Relationships change over time, and the way we communicate does too. This practical, readable and sometimes humorous book, based on over 60 years of cumulative experience from Relate, the marriage guidance experts, will help couples to break free of old patterns of behaviour and avoid using words as weapons when the going gets tough. It will help encourage upfront discussion rather than resorting to nagging, and will give you the skills you need to understand what your partner is really trying to say to you - to bring discussion rather than confrontation back into your relationships.

Your Healthy Brain is a presentation of The Healthy Brain Program(c) which was an innovative approach to addressing brain care and the need for a long and healthy life, first presented to mental health professionals and then to the public, starting in 2000. The concepts were presented at many psychiatric conferences both in Canada and the USA, in a 10-lecture interactive workshop format to colleagues and to the public. They have gained popularity and some Community Mental Health Teams have adopted The Healthy Brain Program(c) as a platform for delivering brain care. After about 350 presentations, many colleagues and participants urged the publication of a book format. The first edition appeared in 2008. This book, Your Healthy Brain, is organized along the same lines as the lecture series, following the same headings, in two parts.
