"This long overdue book is sure to become an authoritative source for understanding and dealing with the many ramifications of infertility. It is a book to be treasured by therapists and couples alike, combining technological information with enlightening therapeutic approaches. It touches on every level of this heartrending experience, with specific guidelines for helping couples through the maze of decisions, choices, disappointments, and possibilities engendered by being childless. No therapist should be without it." --Peggy Papp, MSW "Couple Therapy for Infertility is an essential reference for clinicians working with infertile couples. Using an excellent blend of research, theory and clinical material, the authors provide a sturdy foundation upon which mental health professionals can build a constructive therapeutic relationship with these couples. This book is both practical and compassionate. The format interweaves issues and therapeutic approaches and is tremendously helpful and accessible. Whether clinicians already have been working in the infertility field or are brand new, Couple Therapy for Infertility is a 'must read.'" --Andrea Mechanick Braverman, PhD, Director of Psychological Services, Pennsylvania Reproductive Associates, Philadelphia, PA "Professionals who work with the ever-larger number of couples struggling with infertility will welcome this thoughtful, clinically sophisticated guide.

Beyond this, they bring together the best elements of current research and family therapy-informed practice.
