Summary expansion
In "Change Your Mindset, Not Your Man", psychotherapist Sally Watkins presents a hopeful, positive approach to couple-hood, showing readers how to focus on what's right and what's working rather than what's going wrong. Watkins uses many ideas from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which asserts that the very attempt to get rid of pain and suffering often makes a situation worse. Unlike most relationship books on the market, this is not a fix-it manual. Sally doesn't focus on problems and solutions, but presents a way to move past fault-finding and normalise the pain that is inherent to life. Her techniques and attitudes work for every type of relationship, not just marriage, and can be used by one or both partners with no need for agreement or mutual cooperation, since the focus is upon using the grist of the relationship to change oneself
