Publisher's Summary

Increase intimacy, connection, and love with this illuminating science-based guide to creating meaningful and lasting relationships.

When it comes to building a better relationship with your partner, touch and connection matter so much more than the words that you say. And author and therapist John Howard is here to tell us why.

More than Words shows you how to deepen love and connection in any relationship based on the latest cutting-edge research in interpersonal neurobiology, trauma-informed healing, attachment theory, and many more scientific fields. This book explains why verbal communication may not elicit the connection you seek and offers ways to practice and form new habits that can nurture love, care, safety, comfort, and passion in relationships.

Science shows that these techniques work, but most people don’t know them yet. You can start using these techniques today to increase intimacy and emotional connection in your closest relationships.

Mindful of all the needs of the modern individual, More than Words is inclusive of LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and other nontraditional committed relationships and ultimately looks to elevate the way we strengthen the most important bonds in our lives.

Disappointing

Disappointing to have a book that’s claiming to be scientific using pseudoscience like polyvagal theory. I was also disappointed in how the author discounted how valid, important, and powerful virtual connection can be. Seems a bit out of touch with the author trying to generalize the A-list and wealthy clients he works with. I also expected more practical info.

Amazing guide to loving communication

Run, don’t walk, to get this read! It’s amazing to look at the nuero science side, the way the way to work with the nervous system as a way to make connection stronger. It’s simple, easy to apply guidelines will create a HUGE healing and repair if there is rupture, or if you are new to love, will keep you in the deep safety of new love.
