General Information

Summary Paragraph

Divorce Busting is a self-help book by Michelle Weiner-Davis, who believes in the power of Solution-Oriented Brief Therapy and the role that it plays between couples who are considering a divorce. The book offers two major sections: the why to and the how to. The "why to" sections offers a rationale for couples staying together and working things out. And the "how to" section describes marriage enriching, divorce-preventing techniques.

Curriculum Purpose

Michelle Weiner-Davis' hope is that couples will begin using divorce-preventing techniques, as well as marriage enriching techniques, to fix their marriages and to decide against divorces.
