Finding the Secrets to Healing Our Relationships

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- From our relationships often flow our deepest joys, but these relationships can sometimes turn bad and thus also bring us our deepest sorrows. When that happens they seem almost impossible to heal, in large part because we can't see how to rid ourselves of the negative thoughts and feelings, like resentment and mistrust, that have grown within us.

In "Bonds That Make Us Free: Healing Our Relationships, Coming to Ourselves" (Shadow Mountain, $19.95), C. Terry Warner throws surprising and welcome new light on these troubled emotions. He spells out how we can abandon them completely and in the process heal our relationships.

As the founder of the renowned Arbinger Institute, Dr. Warner has, along with his colleagues, helped thousands of individuals and families, as well as many organizations, to bring about deep changes in their lives and rediscover the richness and productivity of caring relationships. "Bonds That Make Us Free" is the completion of a manuscript that over the past two decades has circulated nationwide in photocopy form, passed on from friend to friend and thus becoming an underground "classic." Therapists and counselors have adopted it as a crucial component in their work with troubled people. Materials based upon the manuscript have been used to transform organizations in education, business, and rehabilitation in many parts of the world.

Dr. Warner begins by showing how and why we generate our entrapping feelings and thoughts, and thus deceive ourselves about our responsibility to them. Even our conscience becomes unreliable, and we cannot find our way out of this emotional predicament. He then shows us the way out--how we can open ourselves to the truth about the people we've been blaming and about ourselves. This allows those feelings of negativity and cynicism to melt away, because a simple understanding of ourselves honestly helps break the self-deception.

"Bonds That Make Us Free: Healing Our Relationships, Coming to Ourselves" is a groundbreaking tutorial for the human spirit, one that has served many people as an alternative to therapy.

"The simple, clean truth about ourselves," Dr. Warner writes, "has more therapeutic power than any psychological theory."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR C. Terry Warner holds a Ph.D. from Yale University and is a professor of philosophy at Brigham Young University. He has been a visiting senior member of Linacre College, Oxford University, and in 1979 founded The Arbinger Institute, a widely respected group that devotes itself to helping organizations, families, and individuals. He and his wife, Susan, are the parents of ten children.
