Dr. Brackelmanns introduces an exciting new model that wraps the most promising ideas and concepts about marriage into a unified and comprehensive whole. This comprehensive book will teach therapists to help couples accomplish differentiation from each other and enable them to develop a close, intimate, empathic and accepting relationship.

The book is divided into four parts: Part One illustrates the evolution of marriage over the last fifty years. Part Two explores the developmental lines of marriage. Part Three demonstrates how the developmental lines lead to four fundamental levels of couple interaction. Part Four elaborates one of the most important indications for individual psychotherapy: moderate to severe insecure attachment organizations or disorders. Part Five tackles the question of how to define 'marriage' and the difference between closeness and attachment, as well as the two different transferences and two different kinds of anger.

Remaining books in the series (coming soon): Book Two: The Skill: The Dialogue of Intimacy: Finding the Other teaches the skill of talking and listening. Book Three: The Therapies: All Roads Lead to Rome will cover family therapy and the ten different kinds of couples therapy. Book Four: The Pathway: A Road Less Traveled describes blocks to couples therapy, affairs, separation, divorce and remarriage, and couples therapy with the LGBTQ community.
