Serving more than ten thousand couples over a span of more than twenty years, Hope Restored is the comprehensive model for Christian marriage counselors, therapists, and others seeking to help marriages in distress.
The clinical team at the Focus Marriage Institute who developed the remarkably successful program Hope Restored: A Marriage Intensive Experience has created this guide, which provides a replicable model for working with couples in marital crisis. This professional resource contains numerous intervention and therapeutic strategies that you can apply to your personal therapy style, the unique individuals you serve, and the specific relational circumstances.
Section 1 examines the key concepts, principles, and skills presented, along with their potential application.
Section 2 dives deeper into the process of therapy and application, considering goals and objectives, the therapeutic relationship, the role of psychoeducation, sequencing, marriage dynamics, and more.
Section 3 considers theological and psychological assumptions as well as foundations of the model and marital therapy research context.
Designed for the Christian marriage counselor or therapist; others, including pastors and lay leaders with a heart for marriage restoration, will find this proven model to be a valuable resource that stands the test of time.
