Author Bio

Douglas K. Snyder, PhD, is Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training at Texas A&M University. He is a recipient of the Outstanding Research Contribution Award from the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Family Psychology from the American Psychological Association. Dr. Snyder has served as Editor of the Clinician's Research Digest and as Associate Editor of the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology and the Journal of Family Psychology.

Candice M. Monson, PhD, is Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training at Ryerson University in Toronto. She is also an Affiliate of the Women's Health Sciences Division of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD, where she previously served as Deputy Director. Dr. Monson's research focuses on intimate relationships and traumatic stress and the use of conjoint therapy to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She has published extensively on the development, evaluation, and dissemination of PTSD treatments more generally, as well as gender differences in violence perpetration and victimization.


This volume is a 'must have' for the bookshelf of anyone who works with military couples (or who is interested in working with them). Top scholars in the field focus on practical applications of evidence-based treatments for veterans and their significant others.

Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

Finally - this is the book we psychotherapists have been waiting for. Snyder and Monson, and their star-studded cast of contributors, provide us with the most effective couple and family interventions for common problems of active duty military personnel and veterans. Both partners in a military marriage sacrifice for their country, both partners deserve our respect, and both deserve the support and guidance that enhances their resilience - individually, as a couple, and for their family.
-Susan H. McDaniel, PhD,
Director, Institute for the Family, University of Rochester Medical Center

Perhaps the greatest tragedy of our time is the enduring psychological consequences of combat for millions of military personnel around the world. Unfortunately, most of the evidence-based treatments that are being disseminated ignore the family and social contexts where problems play out. Snyder and Monson have made a crucial contribution with this much-needed treatment resource, which not only presents state-of-the-art couple-based interventions for service members and veterans, but also 'socializes' the therapist to the military milieu.
-David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP,
Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University

Snyder and Monson have assembled some of the world's leading authorities on couple-based interventions to target an area of growing importance. This book is a much-needed first of its kind, offering not only a coherent theoretical foundation, but also practical, evidence-based interventions for frequently encountered clinical problems. The seamless integration of theory, empirical support, and practice recommendations makes this an ideal resource and training tool for the full spectrum of mental health professionals who work with active duty military personnel, veterans, and their families. I thank and congratulate the editors for providing leadership in this essential area of clinical practice.
-M. David Rudd, PhD, ABPP,
Dean, College of Social and Behavioral Science

Clinical practice with military personnel and veterans transitioning from war to home has advanced significantly since I published my first empirically based paper on PTSD 30 years ago. The editors and contributors to this remarkable book are among those who have helped us go beyond treating symptoms to nurture and improve family relationships. They do a superb job of presenting theory and research and showing its everyday relevance for treating war- and combat-related problems. The book is exceptionally well planned and consistently organized. I highly recommend it for use in graduate school and postdoctoral training, and especially for practicing clinicians who care for those who have borne the battle. Truly a gift to the field.
-Walter E. Penk, PhD, ABPP,
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Texas A&M College of Medicine

Kudos to Snyder and Monson for producing the definitive handbook on couple-based interventions for military and veteran families. The volume offers the best integration of practice, research, and theory that I have seen in the past decade. Practitioners will love the hands-on explication of best-practice treatments, replete with handouts. Theoreticians and researchers will also appreciate the careful attention to understanding the military culture; theory-driven research; and evidence-based practice. The volume makes a compelling case for integrating couple-based interventions into service settings that historically have emphasized individual treatment. A major contribution!
