From a leading expert in cognitive-behavioral therapy and couple and family therapy, this comprehensive guide combines research and clinical wisdom. The author shows how therapeutic techniques originally designed for individuals have been successfully adapted for couples and families struggling with a wide range of relationship problems and stressful life transitions. Vivid clinical examples illustrate the process of conducting thorough assessments, implementing carefully planned cognitive and behavioral interventions, and overcoming roadblocks. Used as a practitioner resource and text worldwide, the book highlights ways to enhance treatment by drawing on current knowledge about relationship dynamics, attachment, and neurobiology. Cultural diversity issues are woven throughout.See also Dattilio's edited volume, Case Studies in Couple and Family Therapy, which features case presentations from distinguished practitioners plus commentary from Dattilio on how to integrate systemic and cognitive perspectives.

Product Description


"Dattilio provides an excellent description of the development of cognitive-behavioral couple and family therapy and its underlying principles and constructs. He offers a thought-provoking and stimulating discussion of how attachment theory and schema therapy can inform and improve couple and family treatments. Of particular value are the book’s clinically rich, vivid case examples. Seasoned clinicians and students alike will find Dattilio’s descriptions of his interactions with couples and families to be pragmatic, flexible, integrative, and highly engaging. He is an excellent role model for how to be a sensitive and effective clinician with a variety of clients; I know I will rely on this book a great deal to train new therapists." - Kristina Coop Gordon, Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee, USA

"This book is a ‘must read’ for therapists and researchers in the family field. As a comprehensive guide to cognitive-behavioral therapy with families, it will make a great textbook to be enjoyed by many generations of students. The book is a wonderful integration of research findings and case studies; the latter are especially delightful to read, and will serve as a model for students as well as for experienced therapists." - Cloe Madanes, President, The Madanes Institute, La Jolla, California, USA

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive approach to CBT Couples and Family Therapy 11 Aug 2012
By James R. Bitter - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most chosen approach within the managed care systems of the United States. It has the advantage of being an empiracally-based practice, and it sets out clear goals as well as a means for assessing both improvement and actual change. Family therapy as a generic model has also been used as an adjunct to treatment, if not the primary modality, within managed care, because change is hard to effect if the individual returns to the same contexts that supported problems in the first place. Frank Dattilio has finally melded the two in the most comprehensive practitioner's guide to CBT Family Therapy available. Fully endorsed by Aaron Beck, this book covers the role of attachment, the neurobiological processes, CBT assessment and intervention skills, special issues related to couples and family therapy, and CBT's relationship to acceptance-commitment therapy, emotionally-focused couples therapy, and even mindfulness. With all of this, the book is also one of the most practical reads available in family therapy. It is book that every practitioner in community mental health agencies should read and own. It is a book on which whole community-based treatment approaches could be based.

By Steve - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Integrative Psychotherapy with CBT as a core orientation. This book is highly recommended for the integration of CBT in Family (Systemic) Therapy orientation. It was extremely useful for my MFT education and practicum training.
