About the Book

Relationship Within offers practical advice on how to monitor and ease your stress around relationships. It offers a strength-based approach that builds on the multiple capacities, resiliencies, talents, abilities, and the inherent worth of individuals to create lasting relationships. Psychology and relationship expert Ingrid Fran Smyer reveals the positive aspects of an inner relationship that encompasses an individual’s whole life, including mind, body, spirit, and community. Relationship Within explores how personality, upbringing, and life events lead to problematic relationship patterns. The good news is that there is hope. The recovery of relationships begins with an initial stage of awareness in which the person recognizes that change is possible. Ingrid provides insight into how this dynamic influences family life, career choices, optimum health, and longevity.
