Clinical Casebook Of Couple Therapy

Clinical Casebook of Couple Therapy

An ideal supplemental text, this instructive casebook presents in-depth illustrations of treatment based on the most important couple therapy models. An array of leading clinicians offer a window onto how they work with clients grappling with mild and more serious clinical concerns, including conflicts surrounding intimacy, sex, power, and communication; parenting issues; and mental illness. Featuring couples of varying ages, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations, the cases shed light on both what works and what doesn't work when treating intimate partners. Each candid case presentation includes engaging comments and discussion questions from the editor.

Review

"Couples today face the daunting challenges of stress-laden lives and precious little time to nurture their relationship, and couple therapists find themselves with many complex cases. In this timely volume, Gurman and a cadre of leading couple therapists provide a wealth of practical guidelines, case illustrations, and commentary from their own experiences and varied practice orientations. Both beginning social work students and experienced practitioners will find this casebook invaluable."--Froma Walsh, PhD, Codirector, Chicago Center...
