Polyamory communication Survival kit


A survival kit provides bare essentials that are necessary when we're in life-threatening circumstances: the basic tools we must have in order to make a difficult situation livable. Survival kits are compact and portable, giving us speedy access to crucial tools when we're in trouble and need them the most.

That's the goal of this book: to provide in brief and usable form all the basic tools you need in order to communicate well, even in difficult circumstances. Hopefully you'll continue to expand and deepen your understanding of communication throughout your life, developing a prodigious repertoire of high-level communication skills--but that's beyond the scope of this book. Instead, you'll find everything you need within these covers to begin your journey, not to end it.

The use of these tools isn't limited to romantic relationships. You can use them with your family, friends and business acquaintances--any situation where you want to build mutual respect and healthier relationships. And even though you probably wouldn't want to share the intimate details of your life with every business acquaintance, the basic ideas and tools are just as applicable in most business situations as they are in the most intimate lover's pillow-talk.

There are five communication tools in your survival kit. You'll learn to:

    1. Build a Cooperative Atmosphere (I-Statements)

    2. Encourage Your Partner to Talk (Open-Ended Questions)

    3. Understand Your Partner Better (Active Listening)

    4. Think "Everybody Wins!" (Maintain a Win-Win Attitude)

    5. Know Thyself (Build Self-Awareness)

Experiential exercises are included in each section to help you practice using each tool and understand it more clearly. You'll also learn how to use these tools in practical situations: de-fusing arguments, dealing with "difficult" people, increasing intimacy, and so on.

The Poly Communication Survival Kit is available in printed form for only $14.95 plus $3 shipping/handling. It is also available in PDF format for download onto your computer for only $9.95.
