Compelled to Control: by J. Keith Miller
Author: J. Keith Miller
|Compelled to Control|
Recovering Intimacy in Broken Relationships
this exciting book breaks new ground in identifying the
major cause of relationship failure as the need to control, in marriages and families, with friends and within
organizations. Compelled to Control reflects Miller's
sweeping knowledge as a thinker, a speakers and a
writer. Going far beyond "how to control a controller,"
Miller speaks from the perspective of experience and
"When a controller has the sense of life being out of
control," he says, "he or she reacts with an even stronger
need to "get things under control" usually with the negative result of alienating the people
who matter the most." Miller tackles this deeply denied, seemingly universal phenomenon with
compassion and offers a way out of the dilemma. He tells who to approach broken
relationships in new ways, leaving behind destructive patterns of perfectionism and
Keith miller is one of those rare writers who can combine intellectual acuity with deeply felt
insight born of his own struggle for authenticity.Compelled to Control is an impressive
contribution to the literature of recovery and personal change.

In broken business and personal relationships, the underlying cause is the "persistent, irresistible urge to control other people and situations". In this insightful, readable book, Miller identifies the origins of this control "disease", describes in detail how it infiltrates our lives, producing co-dependency and other dysfunctions, and makes specific suggestions on how to repair the problem and heal its emotional damage.
What the Experts are Saying
"It is Keith Miller's genius to take very elusive and complicated material and
make it understandable. Keith presents the problem in concrete terms, and
outlines a practical set of corrective experiences anyone can learn. I recommend
this book and predict it will be around for a very long time."
- John Bradshaw
"Keith Miller has done it again. He's cut straight to the soul, the inner workings
that make it hard for us to love or be loved, He is first with the deep, valuable
insight to apply control research to the intimate wars between women and men."
- T. George Harris, founding editor, Psychology Today and American
