|"What does a healthy relationship look like? A good question, in theory, but expert couple's therapist Julie Menanno wants you to consider: what does a securely attached relationship feel like? The answer to this question is the ultimate goal in Secure Love, a groundbreaking guide to understanding secure attachment in adult relationships. While attachment theory has grown in popularity to explain the relationship between children and their caregivers, it's also the closest science has come to making sense of our adult romantic connections. Julie Menanno is the couple's therapist behind the popular Instagram account @TheSecureRelationship, whose valuable relationship advice from her expertise gained her over a million fans. In Secure Love, Menanno tackles: Why you and your partner have the same fight over and over (hint: it's called a negative cycle, and underlying every fight, argument, silent treatment, or passive-aggressive comment is an unmet attachment need). The four attachment types, with exercises designed to help you understand you and your partner's attachment style. How to improve communication, including staying connected during conflict by prioritizing vulnerability rather than protecting yourself. 'Instead of that, say this' suggested scripts of how to approach difficult situations in your relationship. Why insecure attachment negatively impacts a couple's sex life and how to restore that sexual connection. Secure Love is a crash course in understanding how you show up in a relationship and how to get out of negative cycles. Menanno teaches you how to establish a secure attachment with your partner to create the bond you've been longing for."--
