Overview

Building on the precepts of the Imago Relationship Therapy Model, as introduced in Dr. Harville Hendrix's best-selling Getting the Love you Want, Short Term Couples Therapy makes available to the professional therapist the technique and rationale of this evolutionary approach to working with couples in a brief therapy context.

The six-session format is laid out clearly and cogently so that its potential for application is immediately apparent, especially given the parameters of employee assistance programs and managed care. A gifted communicator, the author distills the essence of the Imago Model into a pracical, workable methodology that will have meaning in the life of the couple long after the sessions are over.

What this book offers is a unique reality-based approach to facilitating effective couple interaction, so that the Couples Dialogue is internalized and enduring. The couple then moves on with a more flexible and authentic relationship in place. And the therapist can feel good about letting them go.\

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A six-session format for repairing a marriage, especially convenient for fitting into the temporal parameters of managed care. The copyrighted method encourages increased couples interaction but smacks slightly of new-age self-absorption. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
