We all bring a wound or two from childhood to our relationship with our spouse. In Healing the Wounds that Hurt Relationships, psychologist Martin Rovers helps you examine and re-create your relationship in a healthy and loving way.
This is a hope-filled book for individuals and couples, as well as those who work with them in counseling: people who want to love and be loved, who want to know where love comes from, how it works, how love can live or die and, especially, how to love a fuller loving life with their spouse.

Conclusion: From Dance of Wounds to Dance of Love
"It is amazing. You have taken some difficult concepts and translated them into a readable form. You offer such hope and provide a clear map as how to get back on track and live an enriching relationship. You have drawn from many masters and used their work to build a unique model for yourself. Many times couples ask me if there is a book they can read. Now I have one."
—Jim, Marriage and Family Therapist
"Dr. Rovers’ book is firstly about hope; for troubling relationships and for those who seek to improve theirs. Granted all relationships take work or they would have no lasting value. The exercises given to do are not daunting, but achievable. Just as "it takes many stones to make a mountain," little efforts can make for great results. It is with gratitude that I read this book and found it to be heartfelt, insightful, fresh in perspective and a real asset to the field of couple building, so needed in today’s society. I like very much the dialogue wheel and will start using it right away. I look forward to future works by this author."
