“Anyone who has worked with couples who are in enough pain to go to a therapist knows how challenging this work can be. Doing couples work within the reality of today's marketplace is even more challenging. [This book] succeeds in making the challenge seem less daunting....I highly recommend this book for experienced clinicians who work with couples regardless of whether they have managed care clients....I consider it a valuable addition to my library.”

“Donovan's book is a treasure trove of maps, guides, and directions for finding our way through the tricky terrain of couples treatment using brief therapy models....[The book] repeatedly demonstrates that even within the complex context of brief couple therapy, a powerful therapeutic relationship based on a profound sense of empathy can allow a wide array of approaches to be quite successful.”
