5 Star Review from Readers Favorite 

A rare self-help books that combines a good layout with good content

– Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers’ Favorite

The Relationship Protocol: How to Talk, Defuse and Build Healthier Relationships by Debra M. Roberts is a self-help book about how to communicate in relationships that might not be as good as they were, or as good as they could be. It can be a friendship, a love relationship, a work relationship – all are covered in this protocol. The chapters take you through the relationship protocol and its steps in a logical way and illustrate how the RP works by using real life examples.

The Relationship Protocol: How to Talk, Defuse and Build Healthier Relationships by Debra M. Roberts is one of those rare self-help books that combines a good layout with good content. Far too often you only get one of both. You know all those pretty books with worthless content? This is not one of them. I was surprised to see that some things I have recently done with a challenging person in my life are actually the right steps. I was using the relationship protocol without really knowing about it, and I was wondering what I was doing right – because over the last few weeks things did improve a lot. And that was with me only using the steps of the protocol. Now that I have read the book, I gained an even better insight into how relationships work, and how you need to communicate if you truly want to be closer to the people you care about. I would definitely recommend this book to people who have some challenging relationships in their lives, and who would honestly want to work on making them better.

A ‘Must Have’ for anyone who is in a relationship (all of us).

– Phoebe Kessler, LCSW on September 7, 2014

Debra Roberts, a skilled and trusted colleague, has developed a protocol and written a book that has proven to be the new standard for mending relationships. Its clear-cut guidance leaves no room for excuses in any particular relationship that claims to have impossible miscommunication. Whether addressing a marital, familial, or friendship issue, the Relationship Protocol applies. It is evident that Debra’s therapeutic training, experience and genuine down to earth quality is woven through the book, lending the reader usable tools on each page.

An insightful and unique approach to relationships and communication!

– Elizabeth H., on July 26, 2014

I have had the enlightening experience of reading this wonderful book, trying its theory with success in my life and the added bonus of hearing the author lecture. This book truly adds new insight into the dialog about how we continue to have productive relationships and helps to guide us toward the relationships that can be salvaged and those which cannot. It is written in a warm, friendly and completely approachable manner. It is an amazingly quick read with surprisingly deep content. When I finished it (and it is a book I will surely turn to often!) I realized how much new and useful information I had learned. This one is a keeper and has become my go-to-guide for personal and professional discussions!

This book is very nicely laid out and easy to read

– Barbara M., on August 7, 2014

This book is very nicely laid out and easy to read. It explains how to work to gain positive responses in any relationship. I especially like the last chapter where the key elements, steps and mantra are available as a quick reference. When I need to remind myself on how to work optimistically on any relationship, I go here.

Wonderful book for relationship help

– Rhona S., on August 12, 2014

Debra M. Roberts, LCSW presents her “Relationship Protocol” in a concise manner, straight to the point, written in layman’s terms, making it easy to read. Each chapter is rich with steps, questions to ask yourself, key elements and examples. If this book does not help one to talk, defuse and build healthier relationships, I do not know what would. Read it. Use the tools given to you. Commit to the strategies outlined. Change is a process. Give it the time it takes and do the work. Use the book as a reference guide. I think you will be pleased at the end result.
