Everett L. Worthington, Jr. offers a comprehensive manual for assisting couples over common rough spots and through serious problems in a manner that is compassionate, effective and brief. His hope-focused (rather than problem-focused) approach enables couples to see that change is possible and gives them a new outlook on the future. Combining this with a brief approach that addresses the realities of managed care and tight budgets, Worthington shows how to be strategic in each counseling situation by including teaching, training, exercises, forgiveness, modeling and motivation. At the heart of the book are dozens of interventions and exercises, including

  • drawing on central values
  • promoting confession and forgiveness
  • strengthening communication
  • aiding conflict resolution
  • changing patterns of thinking
  • developing intimacy
  • cementing commitment
Backed by years of experience and substantial research, hope-focused marriage counseling offers hope to counselors that they can provide help to troubled couples quickly, compassionately and effectively. This paperback edition includes a new introduction, summarizing the latest findings and developments in marital counseling and applying hope-focused marriage counseling to today's cultural and clinical realities.

Review:

"This outstanding and practical book is certain to become a standard text of Christian marriage counseling. . . . If your budget allows you to purchase only one counseling book this year, consider buying this as your book." (Gary R. Collins, Christian Counseling Today)

"Written most helpfully for pastors who want to adapt a professional model of marital counseling to their pastoral marital counseling . . . very specific and practical." (Journal of Psychology & Christianity)

"Worthington's work is a rock solid strategy for helping couples progress through crisis, while equipping them with skills to effectively manage future conflict." (Ashland Theological Journal)
