How Therapy Can Be Hazardous to Your Marital Health - Speech by William J. Doherty, PhD

This speech, given in 1999 at the Smart Marriages Conference, can be found at http://www.smartmarriages.com/hazardous.html. I highly recommend it for anyone considering counseling as Doherty provides good perspective into finding an effective marriage counselor. In addition, the site at which the article is posted points to other useful marriage and counseling resources.
