Dreyfus offers invaluable lessons that are both insightful and applicable in this book. As Dreyfus also explains, many of these cards could easily fit under different categories; to me, this card, when successfully used, could easily "shift gears" (an earlier section of cards).

This book is first-aid for a painful interaction, but more than that, a manual for staying true to yourself when you thought it impossible. It will make it safe for you to be vulnerable. It will let you speak from your heart without distracting voicetones. This is a guidebook to the real you, because it turns out that it is not really telling you what to say at all. It is only reminding you of who you really are, and trusting that you can take it from there. true regards, Nancy Dreyfus, Ps.

Reviews about Talk to Me Like I'm Someone You Love: Flash Cards for Real Life (7):

"Talk to me like I'm someone you love" should, in the best of all possible worlds, be all one would need to say to wake up their partner (or anyone else they care about who they're interacting with) to the tragic, dis-connecting nature of reactive attempts to communicate...

But since few of us live in that world, we need all the help we can get. Each of Nancy Dreyfus' brilliant flash-cards represents an attempt to re-connect with a loved one when shame and separation has driven us apart.

I love the simplicity of the title. It reminds me of another great book and book-title: "Emotional Safety: Viewing Couples Through the Lens of Affect." When I found that book, I immediately recognized that the relationship I was in that had just fallen apart had done so because of the extreme LACK of emotional safety for either of us. Alas, it was too late to attempt any repair...

This should be required for every couple. Most problems are merely the result of misunderstandings and lack of communication. Things improve dramatically when we stop to analyze our feelings and triggers. This helps you to express and understand your feelings in a non conflict way.

I have these cards as well as the book; these are great for people who've practiced with the book before. There's a bit less explanation with the card pack itself than in the pages of the explanation in the original workbook. I'd recommend buying them together because these are easier to travel with.

These cards are well made and nice looking. Just looking through them and reading them made me feel better, like I have the tools to have better communication with my husband when I need it. I showed them to him too. I thought he would think they were silly but he definitely saw several cards that should be kept close at hand and would apply to us and our communication style.

So what I learned from reading "Talk To Me Like I'm Someone You Love, a truly life altering book, is "you can say anything to anybody, any time, as long as you say it in a loving way!" That was my take away from Dr. Nancy's book. I'd recommend to anyone who has ever been in a relationship, or plans to ever be in one, again. It's chock full of bit sized, lovely little morsels that will serve you well. Run, don't walk to order your copy now, I bought a bunch for copies for my single and married friends, they "all" loved it. Oh, another cool thing, there are super helpful Flash Cards, that are also available, easy to use, and they reinforce what I learned by reading her book. Why didn't anyone ever think of writing such a simple, informative, easy to read and understand, relationship book! It's one of those books you just read over and over, and each time you get something more out of it::)

I use these with couples and individuals during therapy sessions. Clients easily engage with these and are able to talk about sensitive issues without discomfort.

Have given these to one of my couples. Waiting for their feedback, but I really like the idea of having it to pick up! Hope they do! I ordered FIVE!
Great communication Tool!
