Though this is a text book for therapists, In Quest of the Mythical Mate is easy to read and offers powerful strategies for couples. If your communication is stuck in negative patterns, following the models offered in this book will help. In particular, the fair-fighting guidelines are useful. These are not prescribed by the book, but agreed upon between the parties, suited to the unique circumstances and needs in each relationship. There is also a structure for communicating difficult issues which can be very useful in disarming potential conflict. My partner and I found it very useful in improving our communication and our understanding of each other.

This book provides an excellent developmental framework for assessing the condition of a relationship. Treatment is then tailored to the needs of the individuals and the needs of the relationship. This book is a must for anyone providing marital counseling.

These authors have built on and added to the existing body of knowledge in the field of couples therapy in such an elegant way. Their style is comfortable, non-threatening. It's all about learning and growing....they teach it, they live it. Anyone who is fortunate enough to learn this model discovers not only skills to use as one shoots for goals but what and where the targets are. Both my practice and my marriage have grown as a result.

This book provides a decent framework to approach the subject of couple's therapy. However, I find that Imago therapy is definitely a superior choice. Check out Imago before you buy this book.

This is an introduction to the work by Ellyn Bader Ph.D. and Peter Pearson Ph.D. The 7 cassette tapes contain a workshop given by the two, discussing their work through the Couples Institute of viewing relationships as developing through stages. It meets my current needs perfectly because it defines terms, explains concepts and gives numerous examples.

As a family and couple therapist, this book gives a great overview and order with which to assess and help treat couples.
Its a bit old, but very clear, simple and helpful.
Ive already been using ideas from this book.
Highly recommended!
