According to psychologist Carl Alasko, blame is such an intrinsic component of human behaviour that many of us are not even aware of what we're doing-or the negative effect it is having on our relationships. In Beyond Blame, he guides readers in recognizing the destruction that blame may be causing in their lives-and in putting an end to it once and for all.
In this book, the fullest treatment ever on this complex subject, Alasko reveals that the need to assign blame when something bad happens stems from a very deep desire we all share to 'see justice done.' While the impulse is understandable when a grave crime has been committed, it can become a dangerous habit if we attempt to use blame to change something or someone in our world. Indeed, the weapons in blame's arsenal-criticism, accusation, and punishment-can only push people away from one another, and result in deadened marriages, unending tension at work, and children who avoid communicating with their parents. This book helps readers untangle the layers of blame that may exist in their relationships and offers a step-by-step method for replacing blame with what Alasko calls Positive Accountability, and astoundingly effective approach to asking for what you need without using criticism or accusation. He also introduces readers to the Law of Personal Limitations, a radical method for shifting your attitude toward the mistakes, errors, and offensive behaviors of those around you-and your own!
The road out of the blame is not quick or easy, but, as Carl Alasko demonstrates in this groundbreaking book, it is a road that must be traveled if we hope to achieve truly loving fulfilling relationships.
