About this book

The book addresses the problems that couples experience through the life cycle. Each chapter includes an up-to-date review of the literature pertinent to the topic, with a focus on practical interventions which are generally based upon, but not limited to, cognitive and rational emotive behavioral principles. Case studies or vignettes further illustrate application of principles. Worksheets, checklists, or other resources that would be useful in working with couples are also  included where relevant. This book presents interventions based upon research, theory, and most of all on practice. And is relevant to marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, family law experts, social workers and relationship coaches. In addition, it can serve as a textbook for students in marriage and family therapy.
