Summary

In 10 Principles for Doing Effective Couples Therapy, two of the world's leading couple researchers and therapists give listeners an inside tour of what goes on inside the consulting rooms of their practice. They have been doing couples work for decades and still find it challenging and full of learning experiences. This book distills the knowledge they've gained over their years of practice into 10 principles at the core of good couples work. Each principle is illustrated with a clinically compiled case plus personal side-notes and storytelling. 

Topics addressed include:

  • You know that you need to "treat the relationship," but how are you supposed to get at something as elusive as "a relationship"?
  • How do you empathize with both clients if they have opposite points of view? Later on, if they end up separating does that mean you've failed? Are you only successful if you keep couples together?
  • Compared to an individual client, a relationship is an entirely different animal. What should you do first? What should you look for? What questions should you ask? If clients give different answers, who should you believe?  

Contains mature themes.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Worth a listen

Some fantastic content however I found it tiring to listen to due to the narrator’s voice. This is very much my issue but I found the narrator’s voice to be quite grating and it took some of my focus away from the content. I prefer a gentler tone I guess!

Unlistenable

I have never been compelled to write a review before, but this was so awful I wanted to save others their credits. This book sounds as though it's being read by a Sat Nav, I could not listen to it. Also, it doesn't seem to be about working effectively with couples - it seems to be about some theory/thought created by the authors. Honestly - please don't bother. I wish I could get my credit refunded, I'm so annoyed.
