Show Notes

Allen and Thom welcome their colleague and friend, Dr. John Amodeo, to discuss the problems that arise when we become stuck in blame of others or self and the importance of distinguishing that blame from genuine responsibility. Dr. Amodeo draws on his decades-long experience in clinical practice and from the wisdom of his books (Love & Betrayal, Being Intimate, and Dancing with Fire) to convey practical guidance for his client, readers – and Start Right Here listeners. All three share experiences from clinical practice and their personal lives.

 

Next: Allen and Thom discuss how a natural progression of this conversation is to talk more about relationship conflict resolution, from the most personal to national and even global perspectives.
