9781438986883: Better than a Stick in the Eye: A Method for Resolving Conflicts and Bringing about Changes in Marriages, Families, and the Workplace

Many of the people I counseled would ask what they could do if they got stuck, again. They wanted to know if there was something they could do on their own instead of coming back to counseling. They asked me to give them some background on how I was able to help them resolve their conflicts and provide them with a step-by-step guide to repair their relationships again. This book is the response to that request. The book is based on the ZG method which I used in counseling for over ten years. This isn't a book of helpful hints from some expert; rather it promotes change by asking future-oriented questions so the participants can find their own solutions. Following this method is as simple as following the script with over thirty sample questions to choose from. Directions are given on what to say and what not to say. Other parts of the book stress how to stay positive and utilize a person's strengths through the whole process. The theory behind the ZG method is discussed and the actual mechanics of the method are explained in great detail. The book talks about positive change and how to bring it about, using many examples. It explains in great detail, using a step-by-step format, how to use the ZG method at home and in the workplace to resolve conflicts. Another advantage of using this method is that it doesn't go to the past and revisit past hurts, so it isn't a painful experience. Whether you need to work on your own relationships or you would like to help someone else with relationship conflicts, this book is very helpful.

About the Author:

Mr. Graham received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Georgetown University. He was in the Navy for a three year sea tour and completed an MBA degree at Indiana University. Following school and marriage he joined the family agriculture business in southern Indiana and worked there for 25 years. At age fifty he earned a MSW from the University of Louisville and an A.A. degree and a Certificate of Study in Substance Abuse from Vincennes University. During ten years of counseling with hundreds of businesses, families and couples, Mr. Graham developed a method (the ZG method) that produces real, lasting changes in people and their relationships. His book, Better Than a Stick in the Eye, adapts his methods so they can be used by people at home and in the workplace. Mr. Graham has given hundreds of seminars and presentations on relationship issues. He has written newspaper articles and has been on radio and television. In addition to writing, Mr. Graham gives presentations and consults on relationship issues.
