Overview

'An amazing intellectual achievement: by performing a rigorous behavior analysis of couple conflict, Jacobson and Christensen have produced a behavioral approach that is completely compatible with the best forms of psychodynamic couple therapy. Packed with examples and peppered with humor, this work is certain to become the standard text for behavioral couple therapy for the next decade and deserves to become the standard text for couple therapy in general. The book is a state-of-the-art manual on how to achieve therapeutic leverage by developing both partners' positions rather than by confrontation.' --Daniel B. White, Ph.D.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Details an approach to couple therapy that combines techniques for fostering both acceptance and change, adding elements of strategic, experiential, and ego analytic therapies within traditional behavioral therapy. Takes into account clinical implications of diversity in gender, culture, class, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, and discusses the uses and limitations of the approach in domestic violence, infidelity, depression, and drug and alcohol addiction.
