Overview

How to disseminate effective, evidence-based interventions for couple therapy more widely.

The field of couple therapy and prevention has made great strides over the past decades, and innovations continue as researchers, trainers, and clinicians employ recent findings to benefit couples and families. The most important questions now are: Are we ready to disseminate our effective interventions to the public and how do we do this?

In this volume, reputable and internationally known researchers and clinicians describe the steps necessary to disseminate a public health model of couple therapy and prevention, including knowledge of risk and protective factors, "ready to use" resources (treatment manuals, psycho-educational materials), and effective training and supervision programs, and continuous quality control measures to monitor implementation.

This volume is packed with information and recommendations, of use for researchers, therapists, students, and policy makers in improving dissemination of our evidence-based interventions, for the benefit of couples and families. "What we learn in our research labs cannot have an impact on public health unless it is learned, understood, and used by practitioners. This volume is an important contribution to the field of couple research in presenting the newest findings from the most respected scholars in our field and making that information accessible to those who can use it in their labs, their offices, and clinics."

"Enhancing Couples is an exciting new break-through volume. Whether one is looking for new directions, new technologies, or new ideas from basic research, this volume will inspire. There is sophisticated analysisof every facet of couple-based intervention, all in a compact framework. Clearly, this volume is going to set the direction for the future of the field. It is an excellent book for anyone with a professional or personal interest in the promotion of strong, lasting marital relationships." — Professor Steven R. H. Beach, PhD, Director of the Institute for Behavioral Research, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA
