Relationship Magic: The Secret to Happily Ever After helps couples realize that long-term marital bliss does not “just happen” and that “happily ever after” is possible when couples learn to treat each other with respect, honor, and trust.
All couples go through phases in their relationships, but frequently they do not recognize and address them due to poor communication skills. Using a set of tools in parable form, Denkin teaches couples to stop negative thinking based on childhood patterns of experience and communicate their expectations to their partners in a loving, respectful manner. Based on Imago Relationship Theory, Relationship Magic illustrates for couples how to mirror their partner’s words in order to increase empathy.
Relationships bring out unconscious behavior learned in childhood. Prince James and Princess Cinda take you into their lives and show you how you too can develop lasting love. Acquiring an awareness of your reactions can help you and your partner feel loved rather than rewounded by old childhood issues.
Why Can’t You Catch Me Being Good?
Dr. Denkin’s powerful theory began when she noticed herself yelling at her own children exactly the way her mother had yelled at her. Denkin explains that “Most of us grew up being told what we did wrong—not what we did right. Being unaware, we often treat our own children the way that we were treated—completing a destructive pattern that causes resentment and misbehavior.”
“By focusing on what you and children are ‘doing right’, and finding positive ways to address the difficult situations you encounter daily, you can break any early patterning of emotional or physical abuse. Why Can’t You Catch Me Being Good? gives you the power to develop a positive parenting style, build your child’s self-esteem, and confidence. In the process you cannot help but build your own as well, and increase your enjoyable moments of parenting.”
