Contemporary Psychology
“I recommend this book to any student, teacher, scholar, or practitioner involved with the fascinating world of couple therapy. You will not be disappointed.”
Ellen Berman - Journal of Feminist Family Therapy

Gary Bischof - Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy

Pepper Schwartz
“[This] is a breakthrough book. Jacobson and Christensen have done more than build another therapeutic model; they have offered us an irresistible new direction-one that can really save marriages. The authors are creative, cautious when they need to be, but bold in conceptualization and in detail. . . . I expect that this approach will revolutionize the way many marriage and family professionals treat their clients.”
Lyman Wynne
“Jacobson and Christensen have successfully expanded upon behavioral family therapy, retaining its systematic clarity yet adding with clinical dexterity the integrative concepts of emotional acceptance and strategic change. The result is extraordinary—therapy that is deft, focused, flexible, yet researchable. Family clinicians of all stripes can learn much from this book, simplifying the therapeutic task for some and opening it for others.”
