"I purchased my first copy of the Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapy at the beginning of my third year of graduate school, and I’ve owned a copy ever since. The fifth edition, published in 2015, provides readers with a map of the evolving field of couple therapy. Like older versions, the fifth edition highlights the major approaches to couple therapy, and serves as a handbook for both new and experienced clinicians….The Clinical Handbook of Couple Therapy offers novices and seasoned clinicians a fine reference book to guide them whether they are interested in learning about a specific approach to couple therapy, or about how to think about or treat a specific issue. The book will always have a place on my clinical book shelf."

It makes the same excellent contribution in presenting the models as previous editions and it also provides a thorough look at newer and much needed developments in the field.”
