Changing Behavior - Immediately Transform Your Relationships with Easy to Learn, Proven Communication Skills is written for all individuals, from all walks of life, so they may experience more fulfilling, longer lasting relationships. Hospital study tested since 1980.
The information in Changing Behavior was developed and clinically researched for over 35 years by relationships expert, Dr. Georgianna Donadio, in partnership with the National Institute of Whole Health (NIWH). Originally created for healthcare and medical professionals to improve their communication, behavior and relationships with their patients, now, these same skills are available for the first time to anyone who desires to improve their current relationships and enhance their overall health and happiness. Changing Behavior provides immediately applicable, proven communication skills for achieving sustainable changes.
It’s a fact - lack of effective communication is a leading cause of divorce, the breakdown of relationships between parents and children, as well as between employees and their employers. There is no doubt that communication in all types of relationships can make or break them, but changing how we relate to one another is easier said than done.
This is because of inherited or past communication patterns that can quickly lead to hurt feelings or emotional disconnection. What’s more, most people don’t have the knowledge, skills or the time to invest in changing how they behave.
Lisa is a perfect example. A 34-year-old divorced professional, who experienced one disappointing relationship after another. While successful in her career, she was frustrated and discouraged about her relationships, including those with her family. She discussed these feelings with her best friend, a nurse who attended a Changing Behavior workshop where she worked. The nurse shared the book with Lisa, who was skeptical that some simple communication skills might help change her relationship problems.
A short time after reading the book, Lisa decided to apply the steps outlined in the book. She was surprised that applying the 12 Steps of Pure Presence led her to discover communication issues that had been causing conflicts in her relationships over the years. By applying the simple, powerful 12 steps, Lisa began to experience better connections and intimacy with others, most noticeably with her family. Lisa told her friend that “I feel more hopeful now, because I understand the skills to create better relationships.”
