Marriage Counselling in the Community is a theoretical and practical introduction to the subject of marriage counseling and aims to help people faced with marital problems using the method of social casework. Aside from discussing relationships in marriage, this book considers the relationship between counselor and client, areas of treatment, and approach to treatment. It also looks at some situations in which a successful outcome in helping the marriage is less likely. This book is comprised of 11 chapters and opens with an overview of the dynamics of relationships within the marriage and how such relationships within the family group affect the children. The following chapters focus on human relationships, especially their origins in the group (normally the family group); their fundamental contribution to the development of the individual, including his ability to mature emotionally; and the effects of such relationships and the understanding of them in the field of marriage counseling. The reader is also introduced to how the marriage counselor's understanding of relationships is put to use in practice. The final chapter deals with some of the principal people and agencies to which and from which wives and husbands with problems tend to be referred. This monograph will be a useful resource for marriage counselors and social caseworkers.
