Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In her most affirming and life-changing book yet, Dr. Harriet Lerner teaches us how to restore love and connection with the people who matter the most. In The Dance of Connection we learn what to say (and not say) when:

  • We need an apology, and the person who has harmed us won't apologize or be accountable.
  • We don't know how to take a conversation to the next level when we feel desperate.
  • We feel worn down by the other person's criticism, negativity, or irresponsible behavior.
  • We have been rejected or cut off, and the other person won't show up for the conversation.
  • We are struggling with staying or leaving, and we don't know our bottom line.
  • We are convinced that we've tried everything -- and nothing changes.

Filled with compelling personal stories and case examples, Lerner outlines bold new voice lessons that show us how to speak with honor and personal integrity, even when the other person behaves badly.

Whether we're dealing with a partner, parent, sister, or best friend, The Dance of Connection teaches us how to navigate our most important relationships with clarity, courage, and joyous conviction.

   I cant say enough good things about this book
I can not say enough good things about this book. If you love your wife but still find yourself butting with himher constantly. I read this book after The Dance of Anger. Between these and the book Five Love Languages, the atmosphere in my marriage is significantly more peaceful now!

   Good read, easy to understand and helpful
I found this book really helpful in understanding relationships and communication ''. My husband is not one for self-help books or counseling or anything like that, so I tend to read a lot of this stuff on my own. This was definitely easy to understand and made a lot of sense.

   Excellent advice for all relationships
Not quite Brene Brown, but similar. A great chapter in the marriage. Too bad, there was not much you can say to dysfunctional family members! If this chapter had been more complete, I would have added another star. Although its not her fault, there is a limit to what you can say to the people stuck with.

   Brilliant advice books!
I have all Harriet Lerner's dance books... they are brilliant and I have borrowed them many times to friends and family during their need. Dr. Lerner's books are written so that anyone can understand them, whether you have a degree in psychology like me or if you just need help with a particular situation.

   Great Book
I had just reread the Dance of Anger and this book appeared like an extension of the first book. It was a practical review and contains much good information.

   Helpful....
Lerner includes examples as well as explanations for how to do. It is helpful in understanding how to channel the energy of one's emotions into effective communication without letting emotion control one's words and actions.

   LOTS OF STORIES OF AUTHOR'S CHILDHOOD, BUT NOT MUCH TO TAKE AWAY TO USE
It is not a book to read. Rather it is a collection of stories from Ms. Lener's childhood that is kind of related to dealing with someone where there is tension in the air. You may come away with a few useful ideas about how to get along, but you will be overwhelmed. Actually, it is a pretty good 50-page book, but the problem is that it went on for hundreds of pages.

   Excellent read
Years ago, I was introduced by a counselor I was working with to the work of this great author. The theory she has used is a particular way of working through relationships and the dynamics of each. This was my first purchase of this specific one due to the wear on my 2nd. The author recommends highly the work of the author. Will not disappoint.
