Argument Addiction identifies the top “Typical Arguments” between long term couples and how to best resolve each of them. The problem with many couples is that they get stuck in a pattern of communication which can send them on a seemingly endless loop over the same arguments which if not handled can lead to resentment and ultimately a permanent breakup.
Whether it's disagreeing over how to discipline their children, dealing with the revelation of an affair to even how to load the dishwasher—these arguments can be constructive if they resolved properly and even make the relationship stronger, healthier and even argument-free.
The Argument Addiction is also helpful for dealing with friends, partners and family members and politically charged arguments. Really! The principles taught her can be applied to any type of emotional conflict and bring more peace and harmony in your life. And couldn’t we all use more of that?
Both Dr. Phillip Lee and Dr. Diane Rudolph are available for interviews to discuss their best tips for avoiding the addiction to arguing and how to live an argument-free relationship.
