Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapy Book Review:

Updating and expanding upon the highly acclaimed and widely adopted Clinical Handbook of Marital Therapy, this book is the comprehensive, authoritative guide to therapy with couples. Organized for optimal clinical use, the book begins with a detailed analysis of the major models of couple therapy. Noted contributors present descriptions of strategies and techniques and link these to a basic theoretical framework. Included are entirely new in-depth chapters on problem- and solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, object relational, and ego-analytic therapies, as well as chapters on Bowen family systems, emotionally focused, group, and preventive approaches. Each chapter follows a uniform structure, presenting detailed discussions of the theoretical model of distress/dysfunction; the rationale for how the treatment approach follows from the model; the overall strategy; the therapist's role; specific strategies, including major techniques, typical obstacles, and limitations of the approach; and common clinical issues such as managing resistance, handling acute relationship distress, and dealing with termination. Chapters in Part II discuss issues of culture, gender, religion, race, and sexual orientation, exploring the ways deeply felt personal values in these areas can cause conflict between partners as well as problems in the therapeutic discourse. Also examined are ruptures of the relational bond and the facilitation of healthy divorce processes. The conduct of couple therapy with psychiatric disorders is addressed in Part III. Topics include depression, anxiety, personality disorders, alcoholism, eating disorders, and sexual desire disorders. Presenting a wealth of practical andtheoretical information on the full range of couple therapy interventions, the work is invaluable for a variety of professionals, including marital and family therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and nurses. It also serves as an excellent text for advanced courses in these areas.

Clinical Handbook of Marriage and Couples Interventions Book Review:

The majority of people, in cultures worldwide, seek fulfilment and happiness in marriage and couples relationships. Many mental health professionals now find they are increasingly consulted when such relationships encounter difficulties that threaten the wellbeing of the couples involved. The costs of such difficulties can be high, to society, to children and to other family members, in both emotional and economic terms. Psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counsellors and social workers will find in this uniquely comprehensive handbook a critical review of knowledge in this wide field, as well as a guide to best practice in its many areas of intervention. The scope of the handbook includes an overview of healthy, normal marriage processes, the major influences on marital quality and stability, the interaction between individual adjustment, environmental events, and relationship satisfaction, and interventions designed to assist couples to enhance their relationship. The emphasis in the chapters which review research is on explicating the implications of current state-of-the-art knowledge for assessment and intervention with couples. Over half the book comprises detailed guidelines on how to conduct interventions for relationship problems. This includes work on different approaches to couples therapy, adapting couples therapy to the needs of couples in which one partner has significant individual psychopathology, working with just one partner, responding to crises initiated by extramarital affairs, mediating divorce, and working with families in which there are combined marital and parenting difficulties.

Case Studies in Couples Therapy Book Review:

This up-to-date, highly readable, theory-based, and application-oriented book fills a crucial void in literature on couple therapy. Few books in the couple therapy market bridge the gap between theory and practice; texts tend to lean in one direction or the other, either emphasizing theory and research with little practical application, or taking a cookbook approach that describes specific techniques and interventions that are divorced from any conceptual or theoretical base. However, couples therapy requires a high degree of abstract/conceptual thinking, as well as ingenuity, inventiveness and skill on the part of the therapist. Case Studies in Couples Therapy blends the best of all worlds: clinical applications with challenging and diverse couples that have been derived from the most influential theories and models in couples and family therapy, all written by highly experienced and respected voices in the field. In Case Studies in Couples Therapy, readers will grasp the essentials of major theories and approaches in a few pages and then see how concepts and principles are applied in the work of well-known clinicians. The case studies incorporate a wide variety of couples from diverse backgrounds in a number of different life situations. It is simultaneously narrow (including specific processes and interventions applied with real clients) and broad (clearly outlining a broad array of theories and concepts) in scope, and the interventions in it are directly linked to theoretical perspectives in a clear and systematic way. Students and clinicians alike will find the theoretical overview sections of each chapter clear and easy to follow, and each chapter’s thorough descriptions of effective, practical interventions will give readers a strong sense of the connections between theory and practice.
