Providing guidelines for assessment and intervention, the author shows how to help each partner acquire skills to modify their individual behavior in the service of joint relationship goals.

"This book is exciting and stimulating, providing a great example of the combination of science and practice that characterizes good therapy... Halford has successfully expanded upon traditional behavioral marital therapy. Building on the resources of each partner, couples are empowered to define and build the sort of relationship they want. The book is remarkably systematic and clear and features rich clinical examples. Rather than being a cookbook, it encourages the creative application of general principles to the unique problems of each couple. This is a highly valuable text for novice and experienced therapists alike. - Professor Dr. Kurt Hahlweg, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany; This is among the most helpful guides to couple therapy that I have come across in quite some time. It will be valuable to researchers, clinicians, graduate level instructors and students as it offers a rare blend of sound clinical advice, a strong empirical foundation, and a 'how to' primer. Halford provides a bridge between where the field of cognitive-behavioral couple therapy has been and where it needs to go. Thus, while Self-Regulatory Couple Therapy is a new approach, it does not require a leap of faith from techniques that are already tried and true. Brief Therapy for Couples is a compelling read for those those of us treating couples for whom traditional cognitive-behavioral techniques fall short. I enthusiastically recommend this book. - Tamara Goldman Sher, Illinois Institute of Technology; As any therapist can attest, working with couples happens to be one of the most challenging aspects of counseling. There are so many dynamics going on; the therapist must be coach, referee, teacher, trainer, and miracle maker! This author takes these complex roles and makes them simpler and sensible... If you are looking for a couples counseling book that is a marvelous guide packed with useful information, then you have struck gold with this one! The Family Journal"
