“Any clinician who has despaired at the challenges of how to help a couple in the throes of a disintegrating marriage will fi nd in this book a clear and compelling message―that an ounce of prevention (meaning premarital counseling) can do wonders in helping couples avoid many of the predictable pitfalls endemic in modern marriages. This book delivers a concise review of existing research about the effectiveness of premarital counseling programs, a clear and cogent model of how to engage couples in thoughtful discussions about their future marriages, and a treasure-trove of clinical case material that brings alive the authors’ premarital counseling model.”
- Peter Steinglass, MD, President Emeritus, Ackerman Institute for the Family

“Befitting their backgrounds, Bruun and Ziff remind all therapists why and how we can help our clients learn psychoeducational approaches and skills for becoming and remaining a successful married couple.
