“As an academician and clinician, I am delighted with how scholarly, comprehensive, and broadly useful Restoration Therapy is! Hargrave and Pfitzer have culled, compiled, and distilled the existent empirical and theoretical family therapy literature to provide us a remarkably strengths-based approach to contemporary individuals, couples, and families." - Robert E. Lee, Florida State University, USA“Terry Hargrave and Franz Pfitzer demonstrate how to do therapy with a clarity and confidence that conveys to a client, ‘You Are Safe With Me.’ They encourage therapists to be mindful of who they are, personally, and help them to understand why their clients love and care for others the way they do, which therapists can use to help balance their clients’ lives.” - Linda Metcalf, Texas Wesleyan University, USA“Building on their extensive background in Contextual Family Therapy, the authors pioneer a compelling approach to treating relationships where violations of love and trust require affective and cognitive strategies to reorganize patterns of distance and distress.” - James L. Furrow, Fuller Theological Seminary, California, USA
