Product Details

Synopsis
Do you often find yourself agreeing to plans you somehow never keep? Do you wonder why partners seem frustrated with your behavior? Do you consistently feel misunderstood and unappreciated? Passive-aggressiveness may have silently penetrated the core of your personality, with devastating consequences for you and everyone in your intimate circle. The face of passive-aggression is calm and agreeable, but beneath that exterior lies an anger deep, powerful, yet often unacknowledged by the person whose life it is undermining. Using a mindful approach to this anger at the roots of passive-aggression, renowned psychotherapist Dr. Andrea Brandt offers eight simple keys to help you and your partner break-free from the limitations passive-aggression has placed on your emotional health and happiness. Her approach includes advice for all participants in relationships characterized by passive-aggressiveness-spouses or romantic partners, friends, co-workers, bosses, employees, parents, adult children, or siblings. With illustrative anecdotes and multiple exercises, Dr. Brandt provides a way forward for those trying to love each other around the barriers that passive-aggression creates. Book jacket. Many people often say “yes” to something when they’d rather say “no.” They offer cooperation through words but follow up with how they really feel–in actions that contradict their words. That’s passive-aggression. At its heart, passive-aggression is about being untrue to oneself, which makes it impossible to have a clean relationship with others. Passive-aggression as a communication method doesn’t make someone “bad.” It is simply a strategy learned in childhood as a coping mechanism, a hard-to-break habit. Changing passive-aggressive behavior requires knowledge, tools, and practice, as outlined here. The book offers effective methods for transforming passive-aggression into healthy assertiveness to communicate in constructive ways through eight keys: Recognize Your Hidden Anger; Reconnect Your Emotions to Your Thoughts; Listen to Your Body; Set Healthy Boundaries; Communicate Assertively; Interact Using Mindfulness; Disable the Enabler; and Problem-Solve for Better Outcomes. Hands-on exercises are featured, enabling readers to better understand themselves.
