Taking the Fear Out of Being Close

Here is a breath of fresh air with which to decontaminate relationships. The author shows that since we are largely responsible for our own emotional pain, we can learn to create an intimate relationship that lacks the elements of danger that limit many relationships.

He discusses the meaning of risk, how to avoid it, and how to create intimacy based on ways of treating others that all human beings find nurturing. He shows how to negotiate disagree-ments and find loving ways to cooperate in achieving the intimacy we all desire.
