Recreating partnership couples therapy is based on the assumption that couples, no matter how chronic or long-standing their problems, also have strengths and resources and a capacity for working together, which are often unrecognized. Veteran therapists Phillip Ziegler and Tobey Hiller provide a pragmatic approach to couples therapy that is solution-oriented, collaborative, and strength-based with the couple at the center of the process.
Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses
