Challenging Relationships

Are you struggling with challenging relationships?

If life has become an uphill battle because of challenging relationship problems, then you’ve come to the right place.  The “Challenging Relationships” blog is devoted to examining our most persistently difficult relationships, as well as ways in which we might challenge those relationships to become more satisfying, just and collaborative.  You’ll find information, essays, and perhaps a few provocative ideas from time to time.   I draw my content from not only the research literature, but also from my 40 years of experience as a helping professional.  I hope you will not only read and subscribe to my blog, but contribute to the discussion here as well.  The blog is moderated to maintain appropriateness and minimize spam, but I rarely delete thoughtfully written content.

If you’d also like to read articles of a more “how to” nature, then please subscribe to my newsletter, “Peaceful Home. Peaceful Workplace.”  Although it covers similar topics, you’ll find the articles are more focused on the specifics of how to manage and improve relationships, particularly at home and in your workplace.  You’ll find less essay and more instruction there.  My newsletter also includes links to related articles from around the web.

I hope you enjoy what you find here, and that it stimulates you to think more deeply about or to make changes in your own relationships.
