THE INTIMACY STRUGGLE PROVIDES ANSWERS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS

 DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Who are our role models for loving relationships? Have we created a fantasy about how ideal relationships work from a fanciful blend of what we imagine, saw at a distance or observed from TV?
 The Intimacy Struggle (HCI, $9.95) is a good place to begin finding the answers to these questions. Janet Geringer Woititz has expanded and revised her bestseller "Struggle for Intimacy," first published by HCI in 1985 with over 1 million copies sold.
 Everyone struggles for intimacy. Divorce statistics and the number of unhappy people we all know confirm that struggling with relationships is part of the human condition.
 For many people, learning to be vulnerable and open in a relationship is a frightening prospect, but with understanding and effort, anyone can build and maintain healthy intimacy skills.
 The Intimacy Struggle shows readers how to:
 -- Create good relationships with others.
 -- Identify myths that cause us to believe we are incapable of
 having healthy, intimate relationships.
 -- Know which questions to ask to find out whether you and your
 partner have a long-term future together.
 -- Be aware of misunderstandings that can sabotage relationships.
 -- Express feelings and fears so we can avoid misunderstandings.
 Other items addressed by The Intimacy Struggle:
 -- Who do you pick for your lover?
 -- What is a healthy relationship anyway?
 -- Intimate relationships: Truths vs. myths
 -- Issues of sexuality
 -- When it's not working
 -- Getting it all together
