"The Rough Patch: Marriage and the Art of Living Together"

Jan 31, 2018

Our guest is Dr. Daphne de Marneffe, a noted clinical psychologist in the San Francisco Bay Area who has counseled couples and individuals for decades. Her new book, "The Rough Patch," aims to help married people both locate and maintain a union that promotes compatibility between an individual person's development and the often relentless demands of a two-person relationship. As was noted by Booklist, this volume is "densely packed with de Marneffe’s extensive knowledge of human emotional development and the parent-child relationships that affect us from birth.... [It] will be as useful to care providers and those who study family psychology as it will be to readers seeking a deeper -- and ultimately hopeful -- understanding of their own marriages."
