Fear of Abandonment: Is There a Magic Glue to Make You Stay? Fear of Shame: You Won't Love Me Anymore if You See the Real Me Fear of Emptiness: If I Keep Moving, I Won't Have to Look Inside Based on real-life sessions from his own practice, Dr. McKay allows you to eavesdrop on other couples' therapy, see their conflicts develop from both points of view, learn where and why their discussions get ugly, and witness their struggles while they journey toward insight. Through their stories, you will learn: How each of the four fears works to undermine long-term love How couples can identify and overcome their fears How to look beneath surface conflicts How to move beyond fear to understanding, clarity, and commitment In addition, each chapter is followed by exercises and assessments designed to promote insight into your own or your partner's fears, with guidelines for overcoming them.
