Marriage Counseling Books

I know there are many searches for marriage counseling books, what I do not know is whether those searches are for professional or self-help types of books, so I will present a little of both on this page, and hope that those of you who find this page will offer some guidance about what would be most helpful.

If you are like me, books have touched your life, and you have lots of them in your house, so here is a salute to the bibliophiles out there, who love to settle back with a good book and a cup of coffee and a rocking chair and while away the hours with a book.

Please take a look at the rent a book or rent a chapter options for some of the professional texts on this page.

That option sure would have saved me some money when I was in graduate or undergraduate school.

Theory-Based Treatment Planning for Marriage and Family Therapists: Integrating Theory and Practice

This text is a treatment planner and theory guide for therapists working from systemic and postmodern approaches. Unlike existing resources, this treatment planner provides a means to directly integrate family therapy theory and practice. By providing treatment planning strategies along with complete overviews of specific theories, the book provides a remedy for the common "missing link" between theory and practice. The purpose of this book is to fill the ever-widening gap between formal training in theory and actual practice in managed-care dominated workplaces. The text covers 11 of the most widely used family therapies providing a summary for each theory and then specific strategies for developing a treatment plan.

Marital Therapy: Concepts and Skills for Effective Practice

This book is designed to help entry-level marital therapists learn the concepts and skills necessary for effective practice. The authors emphasize the concepts and skills necessary for effective practice and focus on the current trends toward accountability and the requirements of mental health care brought about by the managed care environment. Stressing the relational perspective, the text helps readers to learn how to develop multiple views of the problem and select appropriate skills.

Would You Share What You Are Most Grateful For?

Very early in my personal growth experience, a wise person taught me to use the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was resentful or afraid and that phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.

Would you share your favorite gratitude story by clicking here? Your story may be just what another person needs to renew themselves.
