Combining this with a brief approach that addresses the realities of managed care and tight budgets, Worthington shows how to be strategic in each counseling situation by including teaching, training, exercises, forgiveness, modeling and motivation.At the heart of the book are dozens of interventions and exercises, includingdrawing on central valuespromoting confession and forgivenessstrengthening communicationaiding conflict resolutionchanging patterns of thinkingdeveloping intimacycementing commitmentBacked by years of experience and substantial research, hope-focused marriage counseling offers hope to counselors that they can provide help to troubled couples quickly, compassionately and effectively.
