Despite the clinical importance of identifying and treating dysfunctional relationship patterns, traditional classification schemes - like the DSM-IV and ICD - have long neglected the relational component of mental health. In this groundbreaking new book, leading couples and family clinicians and researchers present a clinically-based typology of relational disorders. Already hailed as one of the most important books of the decade, this timely volume examines the role of diagnosis in couples and family therapy, and offers clinical criteria for diagnosing a broad spectrum of relational disorders and dysfunctional family patterns.See also Spousal abuse aquot;Double bind, aquot; 38, 40, 60 DSM, see Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) ...
