Summary This comprehensive text is the first to offer a thorough overview of the current leading approaches to preventing couple distress and marital dissolution. Written for professionals, paraprofessionals, and lay people involved in the development and implementation of programs aimed at preventing marital discord and divorce, the editors have created a resource accessible to all in the field of couples therapy.
The contributors to this volume offer detailed explanations of the theoretical underpinnings and clinical strategies of their programs. They also provide a vivid description of what a typical "couple at risk" would experience in attending the program. Each preventive approach is structured in a uniform fashion that allows easy comparison between the programs. This helps the reader examine the programs to determine which is most suitable for his or her own practice.
