Perhaps Mark Twain said it best when he quipped: 'Let's make a special effort to stop communicating with each other, so we can have some conversation.'The differences between male and female communication have complicated relationships as far back as Adam and Eve.These days, advice for overcoming these differences line bookshelves, fill magazines, and dominate talk shows. But while these suggestions may explain what planet your spouse is from or help you spice things up and spend time together, they neglect to address the real problem: how to create intimacy that extends to all aspects of your life together.In Couple Conversation, marriage and family therapist Theodore Chaffee shows couples how to create a sensuous, smart, and deeply intimate relationship by building on the four dimensions of the human experience: body, mind, soul, and spirit. With informal explanations, an array of illustrations, and splashes of humor, Chaffee explores each dimension's purpose and helps couples discover new ways to use conversation to confidently develop intimacy in every aspect of their relationship.Whether you're just starting a life together or close to celebrating your golden anniversary, Couple Conversation will help you use the simple skills of talking and listening to create connection; build mutual respect; establish satisfying teamwork; and develop deep, dynamic intimacy that will last a lifetime.
