Product Description


"This outstanding text revision by Weeks and Fife addresses an important gap in the professional literature on couples and family therapy.  Authored by experienced researchers and seasoned clinicians, this book combines clinical perspicacity with critical-mindedness. The excellent clinical examples and practical guidelines make this text a worthy resource for all clinicians and researchers. I highly recommend it." - Frank M. Dattilio, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

"Probably the most difficult clinical situations to treat, those that often strike terror in a new therapist’s heart, are couples cases. In the updated and fully revised Couples in Treatment, Gerald Weeks and Stephen Fife offer a very sophisticated yet practical metamodel for treating couples. It brings together the most important of the 'common factors' in psychotherapy along with specific evidenced-based interventions and techniques from a variety of models, in a cogent, theoretically consistent metaframework that both experienced and newer practicing clinicians can immediately use to help couples in distress. I highly recommend this book." - Terry S. Trepper, PhD, Editor, Journal of Family Psychotherapy

"How is it possible to endorse a book that is so systematically complete, technically superb, and practically useful? No possible topic is left out and each is covered beautifully, in an easy-to-follow, easy-to-implement style. I wish I had this book when I started to work with couples decades ago. It would have made my job so much easier. This is the kind of treatise that could be assigned reading in any graduate training program and should be welcome by veteran couple and family therapists who want to bring themselves up-to-date in theory, practice, and techniques in couple therapy. To say that I recommend this text wholeheartedly is an understatement; any professionals involved with couples need to learn from it to improve their practices."
- Luciano L'Abate, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Georgia State University

Couples in Treatment is a highly practical book that has become a mainstay in the training of couples therapists. Drs. Weeks and Fife offer many helpful techniques and strategies in the third edition that both the veteran and neophyte couples therapist will be able to use.” - Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor, Governors State University

Recommended by a professional colleague, I have not been disappointed. Extremely helpful strategies and techniques and useful reminders of the dynamics (& potential pitfalls) in the consulting room when working with couples.
