By

Rating
From a leading expert in cognitive-behavioral therapy and couple and family therapy, this comprehensive guide combines research and clinical wisdom. The author shows how therapeutic techniques originally designed for individuals have been successfully adapted for couples and families struggling with a wide range of relationship problems and stressful life transitions. Vivid clinical examples illustrate the process of conducting thorough assessments, implementing carefully planned cognitive and behavioral interventions, and overcoming roadblocks. Used as a practitioner resource and text worldwide, the book highlights ways to enhance treatment by drawing on current knowledge about relationship dynamics, attachment, and neurobiology. Cultural diversity issues are woven throughout. See also Dattilio's edited volume, Case Studies in Couple and Family Therapy, which features case presentations from distinguished practitioners plus commentary from Dattilio on how to integrate systemic and cognitive perspectives.

Reviews

"Dattilio provides an excellent description of the development of cognitive-behavioral couple and family therapy and its underlying principles and constructs. He offers a thought-provoking and stimulating discussion of how attachment theory and schema therapy can inform and improve couple and family treatments. Of particular value are the book's clinically rich, vivid case examples. Seasoned clinicians and students alike will find Dattilio's descriptions of his interactions with couples and families to be pragmatic, flexible, integrative, and highly engaging. He is an excellent role model for how to be a sensitive and effective clinician with a variety of clients; I know I will rely on this book a great deal to train new therapists."--Kristina Coop Gordon, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee "Sweeping in scope, and backed by a thorough review of the literature, this book is an outstanding contribution to the cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) literature. Dattilio covers a great deal of ground clearly and brings the reader up to date on the latest developments in the field. The book's integration of key techniques from systemic and family therapy into a CBT model makes it a core text for every therapist's library."--Antony Kidman, PhD, Director, Health Psychology Unit, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), Australia "This book is a 'must read' for therapists and researchers in the family field. As a comprehensive guide to cognitive-behavioral therapy with families, it will make a great textbook to be enjoyed by many generations of students. The book is a wonderful integration of research findings and case studies; the latter are especially delightful to read, and will serve as a model for students as well as for experienced therapists."--Cloe Madanes, LIC, HDL, President, The Madanes Institute, La Jolla, California "Dattilio succeeds in presenting a comprehensive model of CBT with couples and families....A particular strength inherent in Dattilio's writing is his ability to integrate clinical practice informed by and supported by research, leading to evidence-based practice to which we all aspire. He does this by creating a balance of science, theory, practice, and techniques, punctuated by clinical vignettes....This is a must read book for CBT practitioners and couple and family practitioners."--The National Psychologist "This book achieves the difficult task of being clinically engaging and warm yet empirically rigorous. As a clinician, I appreciate the numerous clinical examples and careful balance between theory and technique. It is a fun book to read, and is full of clinical guidance. As a researcher, I appreciate the breadth of research supporting his assertions. As a professor, I plan on using this as a core text in both my couple and family therapy courses. It is on my short list of must-read books for therapists regardless of preferred approach or years of experience."--American Journal of Family Therapy
