From the Publisher"This book is a vital and much-needed resource for all clinicians working with warrior couples and families. It is easy to read and offers clear insights into the unique challenges military families face. Just as important, it shows therapists effective ways to help heal and support relationships in these families so that their bonds of love become sources of healing and strength."

"This comprehensive, cutting-edge handbook addresses every relational issue faced by military couples today. Therapists who work with, or who plan to work with these couples will find this book invaluable and indispensable in providing highly effective couples therapy. Highly recommended."
Len Sperry, MD, PhD, editor of Family Assessment: Contemporary and Cutting-Edge Strategies and coeditor of Recovering Intimacy in Love Relationships: A Clinician’s Guide
"The Handbook of Counseling Military Couples joins an impressive but short list of practical, how-to books for effective couples counseling. Bret Moore applies his military service and clinical experience to bring together experts in areas of couple therapy, military couple issues, and military culture to guide the couple therapist in helping military couples. Bravo!"

As a Trainee Clinical Psychologist with a keen interest in the psychological difficulties that face military couples I could not wait to get my hands on this publication - and it did not disappoint. Clearly set out and very well resourced, this is the best practitioners' handbook I have read in the field of military counselling literature. ... Overall I found this book to be a very interesting read and a valuable resource. It is easy to navigate - very much a text that one can dip into and use to support treatment delivery. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in, or working within, the field of military mental health. - Holly Hurn, Journal of Mental Health, 22:5 2013
