BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This text has provided comprehensive coverage of the field since the 1986 edition. As Gurman (psychiatry, U. of Wisconsin Medical School) and the late Jacobson (psychology, U. of Washington) note, this iteration incorporates experimental and theoretical advances, greater coherence across the 27 contributions to facilitate comparisons of various therapeutic models, and more case illustrations. New/refashioned chapters cover traditional, integrative, postmodern, psychoeducational, and preventive approaches; and applications to special populations and problems (e.g., same-sex couples, multicultural couples, clients facing psychiatric/medical illness).

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.
