A thought provoking, persuasive, challenging, and above all practical guide for beginners and more experienced therapists alike. It shows the demands and complexity of marital work and is an important reminder of the interdependence of theory and practice.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Beginners will learn something of the demands and complexity of marital work, but will be encouraged rather than dissuaded; those more experienced will readily recognize some of their own dilemmas and will be challenged to different ways of thinking. It offers an important reminder of how essential is the therapist's capacity to think. I can confidently recommend it as a book at once engaging and thought provoking, quietly persuasive and challenging and above all, practical.'
- J. Douglas Haldane

'The papers in this book have been written and edited with care and sensitivity. [I would] recommend it to practitioners of individual therapy as well, who might benefit from a broader understanding of the transferences between partners.'
- Ruth Berkowitz, Journal of the British Association of Psychotherapists

'Psychotherapy with Couples is a valuable addition to the couples therapy literature and deserves to become a classic text…Anyone interested in extending their understanding of interactional elements between partners, and between couples and therapists, will find this book absorbing reading.'
- Janice Hiller, British Journal of Medical Psychology

'[This book] is readable, very well organized with each of the four parts introduced by the editor, and full of clear illustrations that clinicians of differing levels of experience will find moving and useful.'
- Polly Young-Eisendrath, The Journal of Analytical Psychology

'The book is indeed rich in its understanding of marriage, an understanding derived both from clinical practice and from psychodynamic theory. For other professions working with families and marriage the description of the way the Tavistock Institute of Marital Studies has developed and adapted psychotherapeutic techniques to the needs of marital therapy should prove very enlightening and helpful. The book must be of interest to the many people who directly or indirectly encounter marriages and their problems in the course of their own work.'
- Isabel Menzies Lyth

'This is an excellent book, a good read for all of us who work with marriages.'
- Emanuel Lewis, Tavistock Gazette, Summer 1993
