EMIGRANT, Mont., March 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Were you once madly in love, only to be later disillusioned? If so, you're the rule, not the exception. We all know how to find happiness. The problem is, we don't know how to keep it. No matter how much passion there is at the beginning of a relationship, for love to last it must be actively created.

For the last 30 years, couples' therapist Dr. Bill Cloke has been teaching people how to do just that. Dr. Cloke now reveals those essential relationship skills in his new book Happy Together:Creating a Lifetime of Connection, Commitment, and Intimacy.

Step by step, Dr. Cloke will show you:

  • How to pinpoint the issues that make or break our relationships
     
  • The defensive ways we unknowingly kill love
     
  • How we can use conflict to create deeper intimacy

 "Happy Together explains why love, like happiness, is an inside job," says Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times best selling author of Happy for No Reason. "Dr. Cloke gives great insights into how to create a loving relationship that lasts."

Rich with practical tips and techniques, including sample dialogues to help you make meaningful changes, Happy Together will guide you in perfecting the skills you need to create a positive vision for your relationship and a roadmap to happiness.

"Dr. Cloke is a genius at showing us how to make the relationship of our dreams more than just a dream," says Patricia Spadaro, author of Honor Yourself: The Inner Art of Giving and Receiving.

Happy Together is available at neighborhood and online bookstores nationwide. For more information about how to stay happy together, visit: happytogetherbook.com.

Dr. Bill Cloke holds a PhD in psychology from California Graduate Institute. A frequent talk radio psychologist, he is also a contributor to PsychologyToday.com and has lectured at UCLA.
