Ever feel like you are swimming alone in your relationship?  It is quite normal.  But, left untreated, those feelings can destroy a marriage or partnership.  According to Karen Skerrett and Jefferson A Singer, co-authors of the book Positive Couple Therapy: Using We-Stories to Enhance Resilience, the positive experiences of a couple can be brought to the fore to restore and re-establish troubled relationships.

We-Stories – What You Should Know

We-Stories are those moments that a couple has shared over time, whether it was a positive experience or a negative one that was overcome.  Stories range from moments of acceptance to dealing with grief and loss.  Remembering we-stories together has many positive outcomes for a couple in need.

According to Dr Skerrett, “[We-Stories] help shape the couple’s mutual identity; provide meaning and purpose in the couple’s life; serve as guides for current interaction and future growth; and are positive repositories of the couple’s wisdom and a means of transmitting their legacy to others in their lives.”

Positive Couple Therapy: Using We-Stories to Enhance Resilience is written based on research conducted and the testimonies from couples at every stage of life – including those facing truly turbulent times.  Additionally, this book provides exercises and tools that help put the learning from this book into immediate practice.  It includes a unique ME (to US) scale that helps to identify problem areas within a couple’s relationship.  More than a simple therapy tool, this book is an enjoyable read, even before a problem emerges within a relationship.

Positive Couple Therapy: Using We-Stories to Enhance Resilience is not just a book for those in need, it can benefit even the strongest couples by helping them to reinforce their positive moments together over time.
