A revised edition of the best-selling solution-oriented guide to identifying and healing over-involvement or "entanglement" in relationships with other
Anyone who has struggled with balancing his or her own needs and desires with those of the “other” person will benefit from Nancy Johnston's sensible, easy-to-follow method for changing the course of one's relationships. Disentangle combines psychoeducation, personal anecdotes, clinical case vignettes, and skills-building exercises.Johnston describes how to turn this self-destructive cycle around with self-assessments and experiential exercises designed to address essential aspects of self-awareness, distortions in thinking, communication style and tools, and spirituality. “Disentangling” is the process of creating enough emotional space between oneself and another person in order to better see the realities of any relationship and make healthier conscious decisions about it.
