ABSTRACT
We describe the research, practice, and biblical and theoretical bases for the hope-focused approach (HFA) to couple therapy and enrichment. We discuss the development of HFA as well as recent advances in theory and research. We describe the process of the HFA and illustrate hope-focused couple therapy in practice by including three excerpts from counseling sessions. The first excerpt illustrates a feedback session. The second demonstrates a communication technique, using the TANGO acrostic. The third illustrates an interactive exercise about emotional intimacy. Finally, in response to popular demand for training in HFA, we describe training materials that are available for practitioners.
