Book Description

Editor Denton explains in his introduction that “enrichment calls for prevention, for helping couples and families discover their strengths and enhance these before reaching the clinical stage.” In this comprehensive volume, some of the pioneers in marriage enrichment, including David and Vera Mace, focus on the value of prevention-oriented intervention programs and methods as alternatives to psychotherapy. The history, present status, and furture directions of the marriage and family enrichment movement are reviewed. Contributors delve into such timely issues as marriage enrichment for dual-career families, leadership training for marriage and family enrichment, and strategies for developing a local marriage enrichment group. A valuable state-of-the-art resource for therapists.
