Get a "sneak peek" at clinical vignettes that demonstrate the power of creative interventions!

Couples and families present unique challenges in therapy, and other books rarely illustrate the effectiveness of particular types of interventions on actual cases. The Couple and Family Therapist's Notebook provides clinicians with a wide range of practical field-tested therapy activities and homework that are solidly grounded to each intervention's theoretical underpinning, then explores their effectiveness by briefly relating real-life cases. Continuing The Haworth Press Therapist's Notebook series, respected experts detail how to perform several creative interventions and then follow with insightful clinical vignettes to illustrate under what specific circumstances each particular approach is effective.

Each chapter of The Couple and Family Therapist's Notebook: Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Use in Marital and Family Therapy has an objective statement to orient the reader to the homework, handout, or activity, followed by a rationale. Instructions explain how to perform the activity, followed by clinical case vignette, a section of contraindications, and a list of useful resources for both the practitioner and the client. Illustrations and appendixes also provide helpful guides for the therapist.

The Couple and Family Therapist's Notebook: Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Use in Marital and Family Therapy gives you the tools for approaches such as:
emotionally focused therapy
symbolic-experiential therapy
transgenerational theory
