“I recommend this book to any student, teacher, scholar, or practitioner involved with the fascinating world of couple therapy. You will not be disappointed.” — Contemporary Psychology

“Jacobson and Christensen offer an excellent book for couple therapists or trainees who espouse a variety of approaches to treatment. The developments detailed in this book depict one of the premier examples of the integration of research, theory, and practice in the field of couple therapy.” — Gary Bischof, Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy

“The book is clearly written, accessible to beginning therapists, and useful to experienced ones. Definitely worth a look.” — Ellen Berman, Journal of Feminist Family Therapy

“Jacobson and Christensen have successfully expanded upon behavioral family therapy, retaining its systematic clarity yet adding with clinical dexterity the integrative concepts of emotional acceptance and strategic change. The result is extraordinary--therapy that is deft, focused, flexible, yet researchable. Family clinicians of all stripes can learn much from this book, simplifying the therapeutic task for some and opening it for others.” — Lyman Wynne, M.D., Ph.D.

“[This] is a breakthrough book. Jacobson and Christensen have done more than build another therapeutic model; they have offered us an irresistible new direction-one that can really save marriages. The authors are creative, cautious when they need to be, but bold in conceptualization and in detail. . . . I expect that this approach will revolutionize the way many marriage and family professionals treat their clients.” — Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D., author of Peer Marriage
