Editorial Reviews


This is a book that would be useful for practicing clinicians and for training marital and family therapists. It clearly demonstrates the breadth and depth of intervention strategies and philosophies inherent in relationship intervention.
–Marsha T. Carolan, PhD, Michigan State University

Format: Hardcover
This is a superb book which focuses on a much neglected area of primary and secondary prevention. Nonetheless, the book contains a great deal of practical tips for couple therapists irrispective of their theoretical approaches in the area. It is the first book which clearly assembled the most innovative contributors, not only in the area of prevention but also in the field of couple therapy from John Gottman and David Olson to Lori Gordon and Harville Hendrix. It is particularly refershing that the editors have chosen some of the most creative theoriticians, researchers and clinicians in the field. However, their contibution is particularly imporatant as they have also provided a brilliant compartive analysis between the different approaches as well as an interesting and challanging clinical case for which all contributors applied their strategies. Thus, the contributors have cleverly given us a "one-way mirror" in which to observe these prominent clinicians. Furthermore, they have supplied the most up-to-date research summary in the field. I find this book to be extermely helpful for me as a clinicain as well as for my graduate students and highly recommend it to all couple & family therapists.
