1. Navigating Relationship Stress with Linda and Charlie Bloom Dr. Ron Kaiser 39:25

No relationship is perfect. Despite what tv shows and movies tell us, it’s normal to have differences, it’s normal to get angry, and it’s normal to go through periods of turbulence. It’s how these periods are handled, however, that is the real indicator as to whether the relationship will survive. 

Linda and Charlie Bloom are trained psychotherapists and relationship counselors. Married since 1972, Linda and Charlie have lectured throughout the US and conducted seminars across the world on relationships and how to navigate them. On this episode, Linda and Charlie join me to discuss the ideas behind their latest book – An End to Arguing: 101 Valuable Lessons for All Relationships. They break down why arguing can be good, and where it goes bad, and offer a plethora of helpful advice for couples and individuals in all kinds of relationships.
