“I purchased my first copy of the Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapyat the beginning of my third year of graduate school, and I’ve owned a copy ever since. The fifth edition, published in 2015, provides readers with a map of the evolving field of couple therapy. Like older versions, the fifth edition highlights the major approaches to couple therapy, and serves as a handbook for both new and experienced clinicians….The Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapyoffers novices and seasoned clinicians a fine reference book to guide them whether they are interested in learning about a specific approach to couple therapy, or about how to think about or treat a specific issue. The book will always have a place on my clinical book shelf.”

The Family Psychologist


“Considered to be the authoritative reference in the field of couple therapy….Once again, the editors successfully manage to bring together renowned authors to write chapters about the most used models as well as integrate new developments in the field of couple therapy—much needed additions….This is appropriate for students in the field of couple and family therapy, as well as skilled practitioners….This update does not disappoint in quality or depth. It makes the same excellent contribution in presenting the models as previous editions and it also provides a thorough look at newer and much needed developments in the field.”

Doody's Review Service


“Clearly the definitive reference book in this field....Psychiatrists of any persuasion will find an abundance of valuable pearls.”

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (on the fourth edition)


“The book is exactly what therapists interested in couple therapy should read as they embark on a career in the field....This text is ideally suited as an introduction to couple therapy for students....A must for any couples therapist's library.”

Journal of Marital and Family Therapy (on the fourth edition)


“Reading the fifth edition of this classic work left me struck by the astonishing progress in the field. Clinical and scientific advances abound in these pages. The chapter authors are the best clinicians and researchers we have. Their original voices come through within a common organizational frame that allows easy comparison across models and topics. The addition of chapters on PTSD, interpersonal neurobiology, and intercultural relationships is particularly noteworthy. This book is straightforward enough for students and beginners and sophisticated enough for senior therapists who want an update on one of the most exciting areas in contemporary psychotherapy.”

—William J. Doherty, PhD, Department of Family Social Science, University of Minnesota


“Truly a tour de force. With thoughtfully crafted chapters by prominent couple therapists who represent the diverse range of theoretical perspectives, this fifth edition offers both empirical support and practical clinical advice. The volume addresses the many changes in the field, highlights up-to-date research findings, and links them to interventions. This book is a 'must read' for anyone learning how to practice couple therapy, as well as for seasoned couple therapists from any theoretical orientation who are committed to practicing state-of-the-art interventions. Readers will find the book to be brilliantly written and clinically illuminating.”

—Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Emory University; past president, American Psychological Association


“Once again, the Handbook rises to the challenge of being the definitive guide to couple treatments, with encyclopedic coverage of different therapeutic approaches, populations, and targeted problems. The fifth edition includes exciting chapters on novel couple therapies for PTSD and intimate partner violence, new tips for working with stepfamilies, and 'news from neuroscience' for the couple therapy field. As in prior editions, the integration of research findings, techniques, and detailed clinical examples facilitates understanding for clinicians at all levels.”

—Brian D. Doss, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Miami


“The most comprehensive, well-respected source on how to do therapy with couples. A benefit of the fifth edition is the historical view that the contributors provide; many have been leaders in couple therapy for over 20 years. The book also incorporates the latest developments, such as interpersonal neurobiology. At the University of San Diego, we have used this book for many years as our core text for the Couple Therapy class, and we will enthusiastically incorporate the fifth edition into our curriculum.”

—JoEllen Patterson, PhD, Department of Counseling and Marital and Family Therapy, University of San Diego
