In this pattern, women enter therapy at odds with their husbands for their lack of support. Husbands feel beleaguered by their wives hostility and criticism and are defensive and unresponsive to their wives requests. Throughout the book, the authors approach to marital therapy is asymmetrical. Although the focuses at various times on both husband and wife, he is more often husband-focused. He centers on helping the husband develop greater awareness of the impact of his behavior on his wife and the marital relationship. Of course, not all troubled marriages follow the pattern described in this book and the therapeutic techniques are not always applicable. However, the specific interventions the author provides will benefit many unhappy couples who are seen in the offices of marital therapists.
