According to clinical psychologist Les Parrott and his wife, Leslie, a marriage and family therapist, mutual empathy is the key to improving a relationship. The good news, say the couple, is that this ability can be learned, practiced, and acted upon immediately. The Parrotts deliver their message in three sections, discussing first the essential ingredients of empathy and next the rewards of empathic efforts. Finally, they recommend using the online eHarmony Marriage Profile to take a deeper look at one's relationship. The most helpful advice is to be honest and forthcoming in expressing feelings and needs. Recommended for all libraries. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
