This distinctive volume expands our understanding of couple resilience by identifying and exploring specific mechanisms unique to intimate relationships that facilitate positive adaptation to life challenges. Committed partnerships represent a unique form of relational alliance that offers an opportunity and challenge to go beyond the self - to develop as individuals and as a relationship. The contributors to this volume represent a range of perspectives that integrate conventional relationship science and innovative empirical and theoretical work on the importance of meaning-making, narrative construction, intersubjectivity, forgiveness, and positive emotion in couple life. The volume also offers a unique anchor point - 'We-ness' as it relates to the intersection between shared, personal identity and well-being. Under-examined relational contexts such as resilience among LGBT partners and sexual resilience during illness adds further refinement of thought and application.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Couple Resilience: Emerging Perspectives, edited by Karen Skerrett and Karen Fergus, is an excellent book. ... this book is loaded with excellent conceptual and empirical information. It should prove very useful to clinicians and researchers. I will adopt it for my courses in couple and family therapy. I will recommend it to my colleagues, and, finally, I will recommend it to couples experiencing serious illness." (Doug Pettinelli, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (4), January, 2016)
