Information about the book
At a time when you can find a seemingly endless number of singles at the swipe of a finger, it can still be a real struggle for men and women who wrestle with commitment to finally take the plunge. Why? Avrum Nadigel, relationship and family therapist, former punk guitarist and author of the new book Learning To Commit: The best time to work on your marriage is when you're single believes the answer lies within the relationships we observed and developed in our family of origin.
Nadigel, a former commitment-phobe who has battled serious anxieties around commitment and marriage himself, relied upon ideas from Bowen Family Systems Theory to better understand himself and uncover the patterns of behaviour that were preventing him from committing. This book compiles the personal lessons he learned and the theory he wrestled with to gain perspective.
Learning to Commit aims to debunk common relationship myths and the Hollywood- fueled idea that there is only one person who can complete you. Nadigel encourages those struggling with commitment to discard what they think they know about love and relationships and instead focus on the biggest influence on their emotional lives, their own families.
Step by step, Nadigel's book teaches the skill of commitment by demonstrating how to overcome the anxieties and resistance holding us back from a successful life- partnership. Whether single and yearning or coupled and conflicted, Nadigel's techniques are reassuring and inspiring in the pursuit of a happier and more durable love.
