Brief Therapy for Couples: Helping Partners Help Themselves by W. Kim Halford, Ph.D.
[Book & 10 CE Credits]
$75.00

This book provides a complete guide to self-regulatory couple therapy (SRCT), an innovative clinical approach that maximizes the couple's capacity for self-directed change. Presented is a flexible framework for treating couples effectively in as few as one or two--and as many as 25--sessions of highly focused work. Featuring step-by-step intervention guidelines and helpful clinical examples, the book demonstrates how to identify those couples for whom very brief therapy is possible, how to focus in quickly on the processes associated with relationship distress, and how to integrate additional therapeutic components for clients needing longer-term help.
