Lauded as "the definitive handbook of couple therapy," this authoritative work provides a definitive overview of the major models of couple therapy and their clinical applications. In the newly revised and expanded fourth edition, leaders in the field describe the history, theoretical and empirical underpinnings, and methods of each approach. The treatment of specific problems and populations is then addressed, complete with detailed illustrations of therapeutic strategies and techniques. Designed for optimal utility as a practical reference and text, the fourth edition is revised throughout with clinical, conceptual, and research advances. Important new topics include treating borderline personality disorder in couple therapy, working with remarried partners, culturally competent practice with African American clients, and legal and ethical issues.
