"This revised edition (entitled "the Final Edit") explores couple's conflict in a progressive, comprehensive way. The focus is on finding effective strategies, learning new tools, incorporating new routines and maintaining and refining them over time. Shaffer pulls on a number of different proven sources to support his methods and to help the reader understand the reasons why behind everything that is suggested.
This book consists of four parts. Part I is about establishing a mentally and spiritually healthy foundation for the relationship: emotional discipline and healthy love, grace balanced with accountability, meeting needs and healthy boundaries.
Part II details a useful conflict resolution model and itemizes 26 effective tools for conflict resolution.
Part III explores keys for initiating and maintaining change.
Part IV is regarding three specialized populations: dating relationships, affair recovery and safe-guarding, and couples considering, or going through, a separation."
