Marriage is a hot topic these days. It's easy to find out who married who and for how long-just turn on the TV or open a newspaper. But with the recent, well-publicized court battles regarding marriage, many are beginning to wonder: Is the increased interest in marriage issues a good thing? Or are people being trained to devalue this sacred relationship? Using expertise from his thirty years as a clinical psychologist and marriage counselor, Willard F. Harley Jr. asseses the state of marriage today and shows couples how to safeguard their own marriages from current laws and culture. In this new book he offers a detailed definition of marriage: it is a permanent and sexually exclusive relationship of extraordinary care between one man and one woman. In thoroughly examining each element of this definition, Harley shows couples what they can do to influence legislation and how to grow a strong marriage-even amidst today's marriage-unfriendly culture.

The importance of premarital counseling has grown more and more apparent in recent years. As a result, it is imperative that couples are provided a supportive environment in which they can probe challenging topics together. Based on the belief that a couples focus in the weeks and months leading up to marriage should be on laying the foundation for a successful and meaningful life together, Marriage with Meaning focuses on key components that lead to marital happiness and satisfaction. A sensitive guide appropriate for Jewish couples, interfaith couples, and same sex couples, Marriage with Meaning will help any couple enjoy a full and rich relationship that will last a lifetime. Rabbi Young provides a thoughtfully researched and sensitively written work featuring enduring wisdom and practical advice for both couples entering marriage as well as the clergy counseling them. Rabbi Lauren Kurland Marriage is not about a day, it is the quintessential, most important decision of our lives. If a small fraction of the energy, time and money that goes into planning a wedding were a part of the strategic plan for marriage, couples could find themselves better prepared for the realities of long term relationships and commitments. This book provides the foundational building blocks for consciously and proactively developing a marriage that is strong and durable. Giving this book as a gift is like giving a manual for the care and treatment of the relationship! Every couple should have a copy as part of their tool kit for a fulfilling life together. Jeffrey F.

This is the first book to call for a major paradigm shift in applied sport psychology by providing a wealth of systematic, scientifically validated research in a field where assessment and treatment has often been haphazard. In his quest to bring sport psychology to a higher level of validity, Dr. Carlstedt describes the most current assessment methods, intervention procedures, and promising research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice. These assessment and treatment methods are based on 25 years of rigorous scientific approaches and principles that incorporate the most sophisticated research methods now available. The book describes the mechanisms that influence peak performance or psychological performance deficits and the mental training process, and provides procedures that will take the guesswork out of typical assessment and mental training. It offers tools with which practitioners can reexamine their modus operandi and critically explore the mechanism of interaction outcomes. To this end, the book includes extensive data sets on personality, behavioral tendencies, mind-body responses, and performance outcome. Dr. Carlstedt advocates moving beyond compartmentalized therapeutic sessions in the office to directly observe athletic performance during training and actual competition. The text also contains individual and team case studies to enhance its focus on individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete. Key Features: Presents a detailed client-centered assessment and intervention model grounded in technology-supported, step-by-step procedures, followed by efficacy testing Focuses on the importance of empirical scrutiny and individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete Describes the Carlstedt Protocol containing a visualization efficiency test among many other technologically based assessment and training tools Provides a roadmap for achieving a gold-standard system of accountability Practitioners will learn how to work within Carlstedt's integrative model to improve athlete performance and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based applied sport psychology.
