"Carrying on the great tradition of the earlier editions of this book, Gurman has once again put together the definitive handbook of couple therapy. Covering all of the major approaches as well as the major client and problem populations, this volume provides in-depth snapshots written by the key leaders in the field. Ideal as a text for graduate courses, it also offers senior clinicians and researchers a guide to what’s new....This is an indispensable book that should be part of the library of every couple therapist and couple therapy researcher." - William M. Pinsof, President, The Family Institute at Northwestern University; Director, Center for Applied Psychological and Family Studies, Northwestern University, USA
"Over the course of its edition, the Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapy has continued to expand, evolve and become more inclusive. The fourth edition is no exception. It is an excellent resource for any therapist regardless of their level of training or experience. Gurman and his notable associates have compiled a text that is easy to read, provides a solid foundation for novice or beginning therapists, and also serves as a refresher for more experienced therapists through its detailed information on assessment strategies, techniques, and updated empirical knowledge. While each topic has been previously discussed in MFT literature, Gurman and his colleagues have found a way to make the information new and refreshing. Each chapter is a gem. Because this book is so well written, it forces readers to rethink their own work with couples. In sum, this book is a priceless collection detailing exactly how to work with a variety of couples and problems and is a befitting representation of the hard work and creative energy of the pioneers of couple therapy. They truly paint a wonderful picture." --Katherine M. Hertlein, PhD, LMFT, University of Nevada, Las VegasVom Verlag:
