Evaluating Couples: A Handbook For Practitioners (A Norton Professional Book)

"The reader will find this book useful whether or not one agrees with Karpel's therapeutic style or clinical assumptions?.[I]t succinctly reviews a lot of the basics about couples and about couple therapy, and suggests an attitude toward work with couples that we would all do well to incorporate into our own ongoing therapy. It will definitely be on my recommended list of resources and I am sure to quote liberally from its author."?Eleanor Macklin, Journal of Family Psychotherapy Emphasizing "what to do and how to do it," this book is a detailed guide to evaluating couples, providing specific recommendations on every aspect of the evaluation, from the initial telephone call to the therapist's summary delivered at its conclusion. Introductory chapters balance this pragmatic focus by examining "organizing forces" of a relationship, including attachment, gender and sexuality, and its "unconscious matrix."From the Back CoverEvaluating Couples provides specific recommendations on every aspect of the evaluation, including handling the initial telephone call, conducting the initial couple session and subsequent individual sessions with each partner, deciding on treatment recommendations (including when not to recommend couple therapy), and designing and delivering the therapist's response to the couple at the conclusion of the evaluation. Evaluating Couples is designed for practitioners who devote a majority of their professional time to treating couples and for those who want to sharpen their skills in this area. It is also designed to help students who are learning about counseling and psychotherapy, especially those who plan to conduct couple therapy, sex therapy, or family therapy; it will help them "start out right" and give them a framework for evaluating couples in the context of other forms of treatment.
