This is the first comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of relationship enhancement (RE) therapy since Bernard Guerney’s 1977 classic Relationship Enhancement; Jossey-Bass; San Francisco

Dr. Ginsberg begins with a thorough review of the theoretical underpinnings of RE, followed by a delineation of the role of the therapist in RE. Bolstered by extensive case studies, the remainder of the book is devoted to providing clinicians with practical guidelines for applying RE methods. Because it is aimed at arming clients with the skills to forge and foster healthy relationship treatment throughout the lifecycle, relationship enhancement therapy is inherently developmentally-oriented. Hence, this book is structured to clearly demonstrate how the principles and methods apply at all stages of development across the lifespan.

Topics covered include the use of RE to improve child/parent relationships; adolescent/parent relationships; and relationships between adults, young adults, and their families. The author also applies the RE method to specific mental health and drug/alcohol disorder problems; and to special populations, such as single individuals, single parents, and those in blended families. The book concludes with an insightful discussion of the role of relationship enhancement therapy/enrichment in the age of managed care.

Relationship Enhancement Family Therapy is important reading for family therapists, clinical psychologists, social workers, and all mental health professionals.
