Description
Introduction to Couple Therapy and Counseling: A Case Study Approach examines this complex topic from the perspective of a counselor working with a particular couple, with this work serving as a case study throughout the book. A variety of content is presented as it relates to the case study-narrative. The families of each partner in the case study's bi-racial family provide examples of various ways of coupling and illustrate real issues couples face.

Students learn basic concepts and techniques involved in working with couples, and the legal and ethical codes that apply to couples counselors. They become familiar with the historical, sociological, and anthropological correlates to how couples are viewed, and explore their own values and attitudes towards coupling.

The book focuses on multicultural competence, sociocultural changes, and the evolution of counseling concepts. It also addresses how to connect clients with other services that are available to them. It includes questions for discussion and reflection. Self-awareness journaling, role-playing and family sculpting enhance the learning experience. Introduction to Couple Therapy and Counseling is well-suited to undergraduate and graduate level courses in counseling programs.
