    In the psychotherapy training clinic I run couples distress cases are among the toughest for our student therapists vast majority of whom have never been married so I'm always on the lookout for good books on the subject This one was a bit different than I expected from the cover It's not really geared toward even handed consideration of whether to stay or go but like working through the process of leaving a spouse Author runs divorce groups and the vast majority of the vignettes are about someone overcoming procrastination denial etc to work up the courage to initiate divorce I guess a useful supplementary perspective since most therapists probably start with the opposite inclination but it was a little jarring for me as they always say on American IdolMy other uibble would be that there is virtually no attention to research or even the desirability of basing claims on research One example she claims p 131 that she can tell whether someone is going to stay married by their response to her initial uestion about why they want to stay married if they have approach motivation eg I want to raise my children in one house with two parents they are likely to stay married than if they have avoidance motivation eg I'm staying because I'm afraid of not seeing my children every day sounds plausible to me but I wouldn't be convinced of it unless there had been systematic study of whether this is indeed a predictor Multiple by 1500 similar statements and you get a sense of this aspect of the book To be sure documenting every single claim with studies can get tedious in a self help book and her observations surely count for something but at least an acknowledgement of the extent to which these generalizations are speculative would have been welcome

    This would be a good book for anyone in a relationship that they have been considering divorce What I liked about the book is it is not just to talk you into divorce but to help you seriously consider all options and look at if you have exhausted every avenue before you divorce It has a lot of good exercises in it to get you to think about your marriage and if you are ready to separate or not
