Button-pushers come in all shapes and sizes, but they have one thing in common: their behavior drives us crazy and makes us dream of ways to escape the mess we’re in. The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you—a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always the difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can’t just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today’s culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly—to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives. “Your button-pusher is not someone you would easily and casually leave. You are intertwined at many levels. It is worth the trouble to take a look at the ways the relationship you had, and want, can be revived and reborn.” This audio book offers expert insights to help you understand your own button-pusher, wise assistance in determining the nature of the problem, compassionate help in identifying your failed attempts to fix things, a hope-filled vision for what can be and how to make it come true, and rich resources to help you navigate the necessary changes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The morality of Christianity is obvious, but the stronger influences are the secular themes of self-scrutiny, honesty, and accountability. A key lesson is the author’s advice on how to talk with troublemakers about their behavior, once insight about the dynamics has been gained.”

  • “Engaging and conversational, this book speaks to those who have ‘tried everything’ but their button-pusher continues to negatively affect them in ways others cannot.”

    ChristianBookPreviews.com

  • “According to Boundaries coauthor Dr. John Townsend, difficult people test our patience, our human skills, and our faith. In Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?, this practicing psychologist presents a revolutionary approach to resolving problems and moving ahead constructively with people with chronic relational problems.”
