Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Johnson (a psychologist) argues for the value of couple therapy in the recovery of individual trauma survivors, as well as in the strengthening of the relationship as a whole. She outlines a systematic intervention approach designed to modify the interactional patterns that maintain traumatic stress and foster positive emotional bonds. The book combines theoretical innovations, evidence-based techniques, and the lessons of Johnson's own clinical experience.

The concluding chapter features valuable advice on therapist self-care.
