Counseling and Therapy for Couples 1 Mar. 2009
By Ellamill - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was an excellent book! It was a required reading for my Relationship Therapy class. This book contains and breaks down a lot of theories and who and what they are used on/for. I wish I had used this book for my theories class, it would have simplified a lot of things for me.

Good couples overview 28 Dec. 2011
By pelk - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great text as far as readability and examples, however, I think I would have gotten more from it had it been a little heavier on applications/interventions. It was a very brief and basic overview of couples counseling, left me wanting a little more.

Nice and comprehensive 24 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book if you want an overview of couples' therapies.

I got it for a class and found that I was reading through it before I was even assigned to read it. It's easy to read and applicable, especially if you're a beginning therapist/therapist in training.

The overviews of the various types of therapy are pretty brief, but it's nice to get a summary so that you can see if a certain type of therapy speaks to you, then you can go and read more in depth about it.

It also covers assessment, goal setting, treatment, etc.
A must have for any therapist who wants to do couples therapy 19 Feb. 2013
By High Seven - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book gives a great overview of the different theories that are applied to couples and families. It then does an excellent job of integrating these into one. This model allows a therapist to pull interventions, models, and techniques from every theory to bring about the best environment for their client.
