From The Authors

It is hard to describe the privilege of sitting with couples in the messes of their lives. When a couples comes to therapy and lays the raw reality of their shared world at our feet with a plea for help, we know we are holding a sacred entity, a fragile relationship in need of care, repair, healing, and hope. Each of us has worked with couples for over 30 years, and there are no words for the gratitude we feel for each and every one of those brave souls. The amount of honest reflection, willing hearts, and hard work done in our offices reflects the importance of these primary relationships. So to each and all of the hundreds of couples who have trusted us and taught us how to be better therapists, this book is for you.
