Couple therapy is no longer simply a matter of helping couples adjust to the different stages of the life cycle: the life cycle itself has changed. Advances in reproductive technology, the rise of electronic communication, increasing time pressures of daily life, the continuing transformation of gender roles, and the loosening of constraints on same-sex and cross-cultural partnerships are just some of the developments reshaping relationships today. This cutting-edge book brings together prominent marital and family therapists to explore the new challenges--and opportunities--facing couples and the clinicians who work with them. Illustrated with vivid case material, the volume presents a range of approaches to helping couples reconsider and reorder their life priorities around such central issues as love, marriage, parenting, commitment, intimacy, and aging.

"What a wonderful gift to the clinical field! In this vital and extremely timely book, Peggy Papp and her outstanding group of contributors thoughtfully address the central social issues affecting the lives of contemporary couples. The seductive power of cyberspace romance, lack of 'time for love', the need to be like 'tourists' in mixed marriages, and the moral choices raised by reproductive technologies are just some of the many topics discussed. In these evocative descriptions and case studies, therapists will instantly recognize the issues they encounter in their offices and in their own lives. Throughout, social awareness is not just a fascinating background narrative; it is also part and parcel of creative therapeutic approaches that effectively meet the challenges of each couple's predicaments... This is an extraordinarily rich and useful guide." Celia Jaes Falicov, PhD, President, American Family Therapy AcademyAbout the Author:
