Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Making the ultimate relationship decision

In this warm, supportive, and straightforward guide, communication specialist JAC Patrissi and Lundy Bancroft (author of Why Does He Do That?) offer a way for women to practically and realistically take stock of their relationships and move forward—with or without their partners. Women involved in chronically frustrating or unfulfilling relationships will learn to:

• Tell the difference between a healthy, yet difficult, relationship and one that is really not working
• Recognize the signs their partner has a serious problem
• Stop waiting to see what happens—and make their own growth the top priority
• Prepare for life without their partner—even as they keep trying to make the relationship work

JAC Patrissi is the founder and former director of the Vermont Victim Assistance Academy. She facilitates the Growing A New Heart series for women, including Growing A New Heart’s Should I Stay or Should I Go? retreat.
