Abstract

Interviewing couples and families can be the most overwhelming and challenging of all clinical situations. The authors present three techniques-radical acceptance, the romantic history, and wishes into goals-that they have found helpful to couples and families and also to clinicians themselves as they cope with their own feelings and reactions while interviewing couples and families.
