Most people believe that intimacy is a unitary construct-that is, that it is made up of only one component. Dr. Bagarozzi demonstrates how intimacy is comprised of at least nine separate subcomponents. The degree to which partners can meet the intimacy needs of their mates in all nine areas is critical to marital satisfaction. Building upon the foundations of the author's Enhancing Intimacy Program, which he developed and utilized in his own practice with clients, Enhancing Intimacy in Marriage explores the ways in which intimacy is demonstrated and communicated between married partners. A simple questionnaire, the Intimacy Needs Survey, is used to help couples identify areas of satisfaction and areas where intimacy needs are not being met. Clinical strategies for helping couples improve their intimacy are presented in case examples. This book is unique in that it offers clinicians a step-by-step approach for both assessment and intervention

"In this practical book Bagarozzi presents a unique approach to couples therapy by breaking down the concept of intimacy into nine separate but interrelated components, each deserving individual assessment and attention. What results is a dynamic model of intimacy which takes into account the interactive nature of intimacy that must be addressed if intervention is to be successful."
-" Family Therapy: The Journal of the California Graduate School of Family Psychology, Volume 29, Number 2, 2002
"This book takes us beyond our naive, culturally determined concept of intimacy to explore the many dimensions and influences of this multi-faceted process [of creating intimacy]. It also offers the conceptual clarity of cognitive behavioral strategies and the kindness and sophistication of a seasoned clinician. Dr. Bagarozzi gives us an elegant framework for understanding how couples can and do live with their differing personal needs."
-Norman Brown, Ph.D., author of "Loveand Intimate Relationships
"Intimacy has always been a one-dimensional concept that revolved around sex. Dr. Dennis Bagarozzi shows us clearly that intimacy is multi-dimensional, consisting of interrelated components, and can be learned as a skill. He should be congratulated for this useful and original book."
-Wade Luquet, Ph.D., author of" Short Term Couples Therapy and "Healing Relational Paradigm
