This genre of book, you often can't go wrong with, because it was written by a number of authors, experts in each branch, specific topic, that it covers. Even if you hit on one flimsy chapter, there are always 10 others which make up for it from different authors.

This particular book covers highly detailed material, providing good general research facts for any researcher, but also, excellent material specific to working with military couples. There is a chapter on infidelity, which provides some excellent information, as well as a wealth of other information, providing counselors of all types insight into the specifics of military culture, and how the special needs of military couples can be met on many levels.

There is good information on depression and cognitive behavioral therapy as well. Depression is not considered from a medical model viewpoint, rather from more of a systems approach, that is, taking into consideration many levels of sociology as affecting mental health, a psychology viewpoint.

This is a recommended book for those dealing with military couples on a counseling level.

This overview of several marriage counseling theories, with a military application, is a helpful introduction, especially for civilian professional providers. It is not a detailed training text about cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, or EFT theoretical approaches. Each author markets their approach as the one "best suited" for military couples ;) There are additional chapters focusing on military culture, domestic violence, substance abuse, and other factors negatively impacting military marriages. Styles of attachment, combat experiences, PTSD, and post-deployment personality changes are addressed. While a provider will likely need to look further to make a decision about their "preferred" theoretical orientation, and then pursue training and supervision; this handbook is a welcome, competent, and NEEDED introduction to counseling military couples. Each chapter's end-notes are also helpful for the reader seeking further information.

This book is just a bit repetitive, but it does have a lot of useful knowledge about marriage and family therapy.
