Psychology of Relationships

Irritating the Ones You Love, the book for this course, explores how “unconscious” reasons control so much of our choices and behavior in relationships—the hidden reasons we are drawn to particular partners, and how, unknowingly, the past affects our reactions in present situations. This book provides tools to help readers uncover the hidden influences on them so that they can choose partners for the “right” reasons, grow as human beings, stop making the same mistakes when issues arise with their partner, and make their relationships more intimate and happy.
