Review quote

Jill Rathus and William Sanderson have written a useful guide for therapists who wish to apply cognitive behavioral techniques to couples. This book is a clear and concise manual that describes techniques for increasing positives, decreasing negatives, modifying communication skills, teaching problem-solving skills, and challenging dysfunctional patterns of thinking in couples. There are numerous concrete examples, as well as guides to evaluation, that therapists will find helpful. The focus is on short-term interventions here-an approach that will be appealing to many couples. -- Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., author, Cognitive Therapy: Basic Principles and Applications; director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy, New York City
