Close relationships and mental health are two key ingredients to living a meaningful, fulfilled life. These two domains are the central focus of Treating Relationship Distress and Psychopathology in Couples: A Cognitive-Behavioural Approach. As expert clinicians, trainers, and researchers in the field of cognitive-behavioural couple therapy and couple-based interventions for psychopathology, the authors offer a highly accessible volume for experienced clinicians and trainees alike.

This book details the most recent innovations in CBCT, a principle-based, flexible treatment approach for couples with a wide range of relationship concerns, circumstances, and stages of life. Based on a clear conceptual framework, readers learn how to address individual and couple functioning in an integrated, comprehensive manner and how to apply principle-based interventions that directly flow from this framework.

Treating Relationship Distress and Psychopathology in Couples was written by a team of five authors, born in four different countries and working together as a team for a number of years, providing a cohesive framework based on work in a variety of contexts. While staying close to research findings that inform treatment, they provide a text for clinicians at all levels of training and experience in working with couples.


"This team of authors integrates their international leadership on adapting evidence-based couple therapy to couples in which one partner has a major psychiatric disorder, along with a wealth of clinical wisdom as therapists, supervisors, and trainers, to create this exceptional volume. When I teach my graduate course in couple therapy at UCLA, I believe it is essential to include this work; otherwise, I would be negligent. The current book should be on the bookshelf of couple researchers and therapists, particularly those interested in psychopathology." - Andrew Christensen, Ph.D., Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology, University of California at Los Angeles

"This outstanding text, which is written by international experts, provides detailed guidance in how to flexibly deliver cognitive-behavioural couples therapy with distressed couples and with individuals in a relationship who are also suffering with a mental health problem. Thoroughly recommended for both trainees and experienced practitioners." - David M. Clark, DPhil, Professor of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford

"An oft-repeated truism in psychology is that there remains an elusive bridge between the practice of psychotherapy and the empirical evidence for this work. Nowhere have I seen this bridge navigated as deftly as in this volume. Through the authors’ wealth of clinical experience, as well as the extensive body of literature that they have jointly and individually developed, this volume presents a groundbreaking model for treating relationship distress and psychopathology within a couple context. It is a must-have for clinicians, researchers, educators, and teachers in both the couple and psychopathology domains." - Tamara Sher, Ph.D., Clinical Professor, The Family Institute, Northwestern University
