This work seeks to clarify the point and the process of sound assessment as relates to the efficacy of treatment for relational disorders. The authors bring together a range of researchers and clinicians to demonstrate work done with couples diagnosed with major psychopathology, personality disorders, and problems of social adjustment. Each chapter features a different aspect of the characterological issues that are at the root of most relational schisms. Bipolar disorder, panic disorder, psychosis, sexual disfunction, physical illness, narcissisistic/borderline diagnoses - these are among the common problems addressed as the contributors tackle the complex task of assessment, offering definitions, interpretations, interventions and instructive case material along the way.
