A GOLDMINE. . . . Nancy Beckerman is, first and foremost, a gifted couples therapist. She is also someone with a wealth of knowledge and experience about the psychosocial challenges associated with clients impacted by HIV. For those negotiating the many complex emotional, medical, and sexual challenges of being in a mixed HIV status couple, she clearly describes several intervention frameworks for couples therapy, and then guides us as to which framework works best, under what circumstances, and why. Also of note is that the challenges described by the author are derived from evidence-based sources. The author provides many rich clinical vignettes and session transcripts that bring clients' concerns to life and help the clinician more fully understand how to best use one's 'therapeutic self.' A WINNER!
