Why Are You Driving Me Crazy?
How the Dramas of Marriage Can Change You for Good
Why Are You Driving Me Crazy? offers a provocative, fascinating look inside the dramas that anyone in a committed relationship experiences. Why dramas? Because our brains so badly need to express what they’ve held in since childhood, “reliving those old emotions with someone who feels like family again.”
Jana uses real-life dramas, chosen from the more than two hundred couples she’s treated, to illustrate how to harness and redirect these emotions toward change. She also clearly explains the science behind how our brains choose exactly the right partner for us and how our relationships will help us grow when we engage in, rather than avoid, marital conflict.
This book is written in a style that is easily understandable and accessible to all readers–not only mental health professionals. To help readers apply concepts to their own relationships, Why Are You Driving Me Crazy? includes almost 50 pages of detailed dialogue between partners. In addition, there are suggested exercises at the end of the book for couples to do together if they wish.
