“Creating a safe and loving relationship requires structure, skill, and a commitment that helps couples grow into the relationship they want. It does not happen naturally. In No More Fighting, Alicia Muñoz provides couples with just that. Step-by-step, she helps you and your partner structure time and space to work on your relationship. She guides you through using a conversational process that keeps you safe by regulating each person’s thoughts and feelings. Every couple will experience growth if they follow Alicia’s wisdom.”—Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, authors of Getting the Love You Want and Making Marriage Simple
"If you are looking to improve your relationship, I recommend this book! Alicia does an incredible job describing and narrating the fundamental issues that couples face, and she provides valuable exercises that help you understand each other better." Rachel Hoffman, LCSW, M.Ed, author of Dating and Mating in a Techno-Driven World: Understanding How Technology is Helping and Hurting Relationships
"Between the first chapter, 'The Oxygen Mask,' and the final chapters, 'Loving Imperfectly' and 'Celebrating Life Together,' Muñoz takes readers on an intimate journey through the lives of relatable couples who are learning to enjoy their own messy imperfections, embrace being human together, and overcome the common challenges couples face. It can be done, and she shows us how."—Tammy Nelson, PhD, author of The New Monogamy, from No More Fighting's foreword
“No More Fighting is that rare self-help book that honors the complexity of couple relationships whilst being accessible, engaging, and profoundly practical. Muñoz's writing style is intelligent, nuanced, down-to-earth, and frequently humorous. She's particularly inventive in her use of similes and metaphors in ways that frequently surprised me and made me chuckle. Which is important, because the process of improving a relationship should be fun, not just "hard work"! In 52 succinct chapters, she addresses every domain of difficulty couples encounter with illuminating vignettes of a diverse set of couples, drawn from her therapy practice, and with powerful exercises and general advice to strengthen and enlarge couples' repertoire of skills. In short, this is a smart and useful guide—a kind of "one stop shop" of a book—for meeting the many challenges of sharing an intimate life with another person. Muñoz demonstrates how the inevitable struggles of couplehood can promote mutual emotional growth, enhanced understanding, equity and respect, joy, and love. I will recommend this book to all the couples I work with, as well as to my students and trainees, both in the U.S. and internationally."—Peter Fraenkel, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, The City College of New York, as well as former director, Center of Work and Family, Ackerman Institute for the Family, and author of Sync Your Relationship, Save Your Marriage
