Description - Enhancing Intimacy in Marriage by Dennis A. Bagarozzi

With such unprecedented high levels of divorce currently observed in the United States and around the world, it is important to examine the concept of intimacy in married relationships. In the past, intimacy has been viewed as a unitary construct, and its assessment has revolved largely around the sexual nature of the relationship. In Enhancing Intimacy in Marriage, Dennis Bagarozzi presents a unique approach to couples therapy by breaking down the concept of intimacy into nine separate but interrelated components, each deserving individual assessment and attention. What results is a dynamic model of intimacy, which takes into account the interactive nature if intimacy that must be addressed if intervention is to be successful. In this highly practical book, Dennis Bagarozzi presents a detailed discussion of the Intimacy Needs Survey and its use with couples who present with intimacy problems. He observes that the degree to which partners can meet the needs of their mates in all nine areas of intimacy is critical to marital satisfaction. Thus, by using the Intimacy Needs Survey, couples can evaluate the level to which they are meeting each others' need for intimacy in the nine component areas, ands identify where discrepancies between a partner's level of need and satisfaction exist. A variety of assessment tools and clinical techniques are offered to guide clinicians as they help couples improve those areas of their relationship where these needs discrepancies are identified. Ideal for use by practicing clinicians in their work with couples, Enhancing Intimacy in Marriage is a highly readable investigation of the various aspects of intimacy and how they impact relationships, providing a hopeful commentary on the potential for couples to strive toward and experience true marital satisfaction
