IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are aware or become aware of current physical abuse and/or current infidelity in your relationship, we recommend that you first eliminate those issues before taking this class. For instances of current infidelity, we recommend going through the process explained in Surviving an Affair (Harley/Chalmers, Revell, 1998, 2013) to ensure that extraordinary precautions are being followed for no contact with the lover; and for current physical abuse, we recommend reading Dr. Harley's book, Love Busters, Revised and Expanded Edition (Revell, 1992, 1997, 2008, 2016) and, if needed, obtain professional help to ensure a zero tolerance for physical abuse before starting this course.
