10 Principles for Doing Effective Couples Therapy



– You know that you need to “treat the relationship,” but how are you supposed to get at something as elusive as “a relationship”?
– How do you empathize with both clients if they have opposite points of view? Later on, if they end up separating does that mean you’ve failed? Are you only successful if you keep couples together?
– Compared to an individual client, a relationship is an entirely different animal. What should you do first? What should you look for? What questions should you ask? If clients give different answers, who should you believe?
– What are you supposed to do with all the emotional and personal history that your clients stir up in you?
– How can you make your work research-based?

No one who works with couples will want to be without the insight, guidance, and strategies offered in this book.
