Reviews

" Scuka successfully provides a platform for understanding each member of the couple unit and how they can work towards shared goals and improved dialogue...all relational therapists would benefit from reading this book. Not only does Scuka thoroughly cover each step with care, but he allows the reader to understand his ideas via examples that create a colorful palate of information and allow the reader to visualize his ideas."- Brent Fladmo, Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy, Volume 8, Issue 2
