Book Description

This path-breaking volume introduces Socio-Emotional Relationship Therapy for clinical work with troubled couples. Practice-focused and engaging it integrates real-world knowledge of the intersections of gender culture power and identity in relationships with empirical findings on the neurobiology of attraction. Case examples detail the process of therapists in the moment as they develop both their clinical skills and their understanding of the social contexts fueling couples’ difficulties. Applications of the method which can be used with same-sex couples as well as heterosexual ones are shown in addressing infidelity tapping into partners’ spirituality and modeling and encouraging mutual respect and support.

Among the topics covered:
