Description

Love and Sex in a New Relationship explores leaving a long relationship and starting a new one, with all the complexities that entails. Using her experience as a relationship therapist, Cate Campbell takes the reader through the journey of loss and renewal, examining the dynamics involved in the end and beginning of a relationship, and how to give new relationships the best chance of survival.

Focusing on three main relationship issues, the book considers: how to end a relationship and manage ongoing contact with an ex; how to understand what went wrong in previous relationships; and how to overcome everyday relationship problems and make relationships thrive. Taking into account the effect of technology and social media, and how to make online dating work, the book offers a distinctly modern take on relationships. Similarly, the spectrum of sexuality, gender and sexual relationships is addressed, with many different examples included throughout the book.

With practical advice, case studies, quizzes and exercises to help identify and remedy a variety of problems that can occur at any stage of a relationship, Love and Sex in a New Relationship will provide an essential resource for relationship counsellors and their clients.

Reviews

This book offers a refreshing approach to the subject of love and sex in new relationships. Accessible as well as scholarly, it covers the end of relationships and the pitfalls which may be encountered when starting again. The author shares her considerable knowledge as a practitioner with the reader, bringing the book alive with case vignettes and offering practical advice and quizzes. Humorous and thought provoking, a highly relevant contemporary look at intimate relationships in the twenty first century.
