Codes of Love: How to Rethink Your Family and Remake Your Life
Bryan, Mark,
ISBN: 9780671036621
Pocket Books, New York, 1999. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. First Edition. First Impression. Size: 8vo Octavo (standard book size). 291 pages. This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . Mark Bryan's work is bringing families together. He was a member of Oprah Winfrey's 1999 "Change Your Life" team and a regular on her show, where he reunites parents and children. Bryan's key insight is that families often communicate love in code, using words, actions, and behaviors that not only may obscure love but sometimes get interpreted as love's opposite. Messages of affection, caring, and concern may be sent in ways that other family members read as negative judgments, efforts to control and undermine. Gaps in communication cause the messages to get lost or distorted in transit. These gaps result from generational and life differences, contrasting emotional and conversational styles, "interference" from a legacy of past conflicts, and other factors. If you can decode your family's messages of love and affection, from the past and from today, you can open the door to richer family ties. Codes of Love is a guide that offers the basic tools for creating better relationships with parents, siblings, grown sons and daughters, spouses, even old friends -- all the loved ones in your life.
