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.

If you are wanting to work with couples or already do, this book has a wealth of knowledge. While published in 2001, the ideas about the effects of modern life on relationships are still present - time, careers, different cultures. I wish they would update it. I have used this book in my courses for Masters level therapy students and they find it helpful.
Peggy Papp has assembled a wonderful collection for this volume. Her breadth of experience from years at the Ackerman Institute has allowed her to bring the voice of experience to this collection of writings on couples and families. Papp's broad experience has allowed her to bring insights to the volume as only an experienced clinician can. Rather than being a collection of theoretical material, this collection is useful for clinicians working with couples based on what works.

Just saw a bit on tv about Peggy Papp's ex husband, Joe, and decided to look her up. So I'm writing not about her book but my experience as a client in the 80s. We went to couples therapy for a few months and then to group 6 or 8 weeks. Not until we were divorced did I learn that she was seeing him individually in addition to the couples work. I felt there was something I wasn't in on but I thought their underlying bond was they were both ex Mormons.

After weeks of couples work and a lot of feeling like I was odd-man-out, I said 'one issue we haven't addressed is his affair.' They both gasped. Looking back at the aftermath, I might've guessed that she knew a lot more about my ex husband's life than I did. So her work was all about helping couples develop 'emotional communication'. But it's ok to allow and encourage a client to keep essential secrets from his wife. Like affairs and back door liaisons. Or were we an experiment? A "new direction" trial balloon?

I don't know if there's a therapist ethics handbook or if they just wing it but in my book, what she did in this case this hideously unethical.

I was required to do a star but since I didn't read the book, I would've skipped it. Just venting.
