"Truly a tour de force. With thoughtfully crafted chapters by prominent couple therapists who represent the diverse range of theoretical perspectives, this fifth edition offers both empirical support and practical clinical advice. The volume addresses the many changes in the field, highlights up-to-date research findings, and links them to interventions. This book is a 'must read' for anyone learning how to practice couple therapy, as well as for seasoned couple therapists from any theoretical orientation who are committed to practicing state-of-the-art interventions. Readers will find the book to be brilliantly written and clinically illuminating."--Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine; past president (2014), American Psychological Association
"Once again, the Handbook rises to the challenge of being the definitive guide to couple treatments, with encyclopedic coverage of different therapeutic approaches, populations, and targeted problems. The fifth edition includes exciting chapters on novel couple therapies for PTSD and intimate partner violence, new tips for working with stepfamilies, and 'news from neuroscience' for the couple therapy field. As in prior editions, the integration of research findings, techniques, and detailed clinical examples facilitates understanding for clinicians at all levels."--Brian D. Doss, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Miami
"Remarkable in its breadth and depth. This handbook is a fitting tribute to the late Alan S. Gurman's legacy as the quintessential historian and interpreter of couple therapy. No student or practitioner could consider him or herself informed without a knowledge of these chapters, which are written by a veritable 'who's who' of the discipline. These pages reveal and honor both the diversity among approaches and the striking similarities among core mechanisms of change. If I were to choose one book to anchor my professional library for the next 5 years, this would be it!"--Douglas H. Sprenkle, PhD, Doctoral Program in Marriage and Family Therapy (Emeritus), Purdue University
"The most comprehensive, well-respected source on how to do therapy with couples. A benefit of the fifth edition is the historical view that the contributors provide; many have been leaders in couple therapy for over 20 years. The book also incorporates the latest developments, such as interpersonal neurobiology. At the University of San Diego, we have used this book for many years as our core text for the Couple Therapy class, and we will enthusiastically incorporate the fifth edition into our curriculum."--JoEllen Patterson, PhD, Department of Counseling and Marital and Family Therapy, University of San Diego
