New Couple's Guide Provides Blueprint for Renewing Relationships

NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chocolates are fine and flowers rarely disappoint. But for relationships on the rocks, nothing says, "I love you" like the promise of renewal. "Too often even the smartest people have difficulty communicating. We've learned over the years that love isn't enough to repair the normal wear and tear that occurs in relationships," says Marty Babits, LCSW, BCD, author of the The Power of the Middle Ground: A Couple's Guide to Renewing Your Relationship (Prometheus Books) and of the upcoming release: The Power of Three-Dimensional Communication: A Couple's Guide to Creating Emotional Safety.  Babits' work has helped countless couples.

The Power of The Middle Ground gives you tips and exercises so you can instantly jumpstart troubled or stagnant relationships. You'll learn what you need to know about:

  • Deep-seated myths about love that do more harm than good
  • How improvements in communication lead to better sex
  • The impact that children have on a couple's relationship
  • Older couples' issues
  • Special considerations for same-sex couples

For years, the author ( has helped couples envision-and embrace-their potential for love and compassion. The Power of the Middle Ground provides smart, long-lasting solutions.

"Couples need a refuge in which they can safely air grievances and frustrations," says Babits who has been in private practice for more than 25 years and is co-director of FACTS (Family and Couples Treatment Service), a division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, one of the most well-respected couples therapy training programs in the country.

Valentine's Day is a love fest for some, complete with sweets, flowers and lingerie. But for others, it underscores lost romance and broken promises. "The best gift couples can give each other is the promise of renewal," says Babits. "To temper expectations and close the day without despair, couples who need to, can reignite passion and create new understandings that bring them back to one another."
