Overview

Therapists who work with couples are constantly presented with an array of new—and often—conflicting theories and clinical techniques. At the same time, their clients are being bombarded with advice from talk show "experts" and self-help books that promote the latest relationship fads. This glut of disinformation encourages unrealistic ideas of what to expect from intimate relationships. How can clinicians maintain their professional edge and meet the challenge of the constantly shifting needs and expectations of their clients? Treating Couples is an accessible guide for the wide range of professionals who practice couples therapy, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and marriage and family and pastoral counselors. Written by experts in the field, Treating Couples promotes the clinical functions of evaluation, assessment, judgment, and hypothesis-formation and testing and will serve as an invaluable resource for determining which approaches are the most ethical, flexible, and creative for the effective treatment of couples.
