Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Retaining much of the traditional conceptual model and methods of cognitive-behavioral therapy, Epstein (family studies, U. of Maryland at College Park) and Baucom (clinical psychology, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) seek to enhance the therapy by integrating a developmental perspective on the interaction patterns of the couple and the influences of the couple's physical and interpersonal environment. They describe their model and present the theoretical and empirical foundations for clinical assessment and intervention strategies presented in the latter part of the book. Annotation c.
