Meg Barker: Rewriting the Rules

An interesting book by Meg Barker:

“Rewriting the Rules  is a book examining the complicated – and often contradictory – advice that is given about relationships.  It is a friendly guide through attraction and sex, monogamy and conflict, break-up and commitment.

Rewriting the Rules  asks questions such as: which to choose from all the rules on offer? Do we stick to the old rules we learnt growing up, even though they don’t completely fit? Or do we try something new and risk being out on our own and seen as a freak? And what about the times when the rules we love by seem to make things worse rather than better?

This website provides extra information about the topics covered in the book, including further reading, useful links, and posts on related topics.

The book, Rewriting the Rules, will be out in August 2012, published by Routledge, and available through their website and on Amazon. You can read a summary of the book here.

The book, and this blog is written by me, Meg Barker. I’m a senior lecturer in psychology at the Open University and also a sex and relationship therapist. This website also gives information about my other research and writing as well as talks and training that I do.”
