Review

"This is an excellent resource for clinicians who use or are learning to use homework assignments in their therapeutic process with couples. The book is very well organized and easy to use. This book is very applicable to the practicing clinician working with couples and/or individuals struggling with breaking unproductive habit patterns in relationships." (Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy, August 2008) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Help couples quickly develop the psychological skills they need to maintain healthier relationships

As a couples therapist, you work to help your clients learn to understand and clearly communicate their feelings, identify how and when problems arise, and develop effective coping strategies.

  • More than 60 copier-ready exercises covering all major presenting symptoms affecting relationships
  • Quick-reference format—exercises are grouped by skill set, such as improving communications, handling parenting problems, and resolving sexual issues
  • Expert guidance on how and when to make the most efficient use of the exercises cross-referenced to The Couples Psychotherapy Treatment Planner—so you can quickly identify the right exercise for a given situation or behavioral problem
  • Includes a computer disk which contains all the exercises in a Windows-based word processing format—allowing you to customize them to suit you and your clients' unique styles and needs

This book an excellent tool for counselors involved in counseling couples. It has some great thought provoking assignments that the couple can do at home and then process in session. I feel that the homework presented in the planner will save the counselor time but also increase the counselor's knowledge of how to best help the couple.

I am a therapist and have found the handouts and activities in this book to be very helpful in my work with couples. You will particularly like these handouts if you prefer solution-focused or strategic therapy. Some of the activities require the clients to commit for more than an hour or day, but if the clients will do them, they will find them helpful. I like how the activities help the clients stop doing "more of the same" and start making small changes to their interactions; it also helps them focus more on the positive things occurring in their relationships.

I purchased this book with the Assignment's "disk" in August 2008. My computer is new technology and does not accomodate old technology, i.e. a diskette. I contacted the publisher John W. Wiley & Sons Inc., and requested they send a CD-ROM and they report that it has not been updated to CD-ROM as yet. I am appauled that they are selling old technology with their books! I expect to receive the new CD as soon as it is updated. Get with the times, guys. It's the 21st Century!!

I thought some of the homework was a bit "dumbed down." I like that the the homework was sorted by issue it deals with, but I would have also like to see it sorted by theory too. If you know the theories, it is pretty easy to figure out too, I would just prefer a quick reference. But if you are at a loss of what to do or trying to gather information on your client, I think it is a useful tool. Just maybe not worth the price, maybe for $15-$20 less. I just don't use it enough to justify the expense.

I bought this along with the treatment planner and I find myself using this much more. This helps with a wide variety of clients and I'm even able to use some of the homework and customize it to the needs of the couple. Highly recommended.

I took this book to work and showed it to my supervisor and she was impressed right away with the first few pages. This book is going to come in so handy in helping couples to identify what they are needing in their relationships.

If you are an experienced therapist, this is probably not the book for you. I was dissappointed with the content. For people just starting it would probably be a good resource.

It is very helpful. It has some very practical worksheets in it for couples to take home for homework. It provides either a starting point or a wrap up point to a couples session so they can think and work on what happened in the session between sessions.
