The end of a relationship can be difficult. Whether you are the one who initiates the break-up or are on the receiving end of it, "Rebuilding," is a helpful tool to move you through the grieving process, to work through the pain of the breakup.
Alberti & Fisher provide a comprehensive outline in the form of building blocks, in short, concise chapters, which gives the reader something simple & concrete to hold onto without being bogged down in psychobabble. I recommend this book to my clients often when they feel hopeless about working through the ending of their own relationships, and find that what they get out of the book provides them opportunities for growth and hope.
