Press Release 10/28/16
SOUTH AMBOY – The City of South Amboy Arts District is proud to present an afternoon with Thomas M. Jones, author of Love Games: The Hidden Rules of Relationship. The program is entitled: Exploring the Inner Workings of Successful Relationships. The author talk/book signing/interactive workshop will be held downtown in South Amboy Arts’ stunning new Broadway Gallery, on Saturday, November 19th, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
“This is an exciting time for us,” said Founding Co-Director, Diana St. John. “We are bringing national artists to our town to engage with our community, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Jones’ fall tour and workshop series is based on the revised edition of his acclaimed book Love Games: The Hidden Rules of Relationship. In the book, Jones breaks through the fantasies, illusions and expectations of relationships in order to reveal the true dynamics of being a couple. He asserts that NINE-TENTHS of problems in relationships have to do with the MECHANICS not the PEOPLE. Jones will offer an accessible guide to show couples how to get what they need and want in partnership. As he explains it, “We are not broken or wrong. The problem isn’t us, it’s the information we’ve been given. Like the heirloom cuckoo clock that never really worked but has been kept for the sake of tradition, relationship is broken.”
Using real-life examples, Jones will guide participants through many inevitable disconnects the occur, and illuminate the ways to resolve these conflicts and promote actual growth as a couple. He will also answer the questions: “What do I need from a relationship?”, “How much should I give?”, and “Will it last?”
Thomas M. Jones is a New York City psychotherapist in practice for over three decades. He currently teaches and consults with individuals, groups and organizations worldwide. He is the co-developer of the Paradox Process, and a motivational teacher and speaker in the fields of relationships and conflict resolution.
