We’ve all read books by experts offering “solutions” for couples whose marriages are at or nearing crisis point. Many of those books are extremely valuable. However The Complete Marriage Counselor: Relationship-Saving Advice from America’s Top 50+ Couples Therapists offers something different. My philosophy in conceiving this project was simple. Why settle for advice from one sage or even two when you can glean the combined wisdom of the country’s top marriage counselors in one handy volume? The result is an essential compendium—one-stop shopping for anyone whose relationship could use a little or a lot of help.
The therapists participating in this book comprise a Who’s Who of the Best in the Business, including John Gray, PhD., Judy Kuriansky, PhD, Harville Hendrix, PhD., Cloé Madanes, PhD., FAPA, Warren Farrell, PhD., Sue Johnson, EdD., Bonnie Eaker Weil, PhD., Frank Pittman, MD, Diana Kirschner, PhD., and Esther Perel The experts cited here cull from a variety of therapeutic approaches that are based on years of research and practical application. Thus, their techniques work.
There are several wonderful books featuring questions two people should ask themselves and each other before taking the plunge. This volume contains the most pressing post-plunge questions for which longtime couples desperately need down, dirty, and deeply effective answers. Those answers will come not from one or two sources but an assemblage of the most esteemed relationship counselors in the country.
