  • Neurodiverse Couple Therapy: A Practical Guide to Brain-Informed Care


    This inclusive and comprehensive manual equips marriage and family therapists with the skills to identify, support, and provide Brain-Informed Care to neurodiverse couples. 

    Written from Murgado-Willard’s unique perspective as a neurodivergent couple therapist, this book:

    Addresses a knowledge gap in the couple counseling field

    Helps therapists develop and maintain an ethical standard of care for neurodiverse couples

    Introduces a new style of couple therapy for use in private practice settings: Brain-Informed Neurodiverse Couple Therapy (BINCT)

    Chapters begin by providing some historical context of neurodiversity before offering invaluable training on best practices, assessment, treatment planning, and using non-ableist, practical interventions for this population. Case studies that present a variety of sexual identities are featured throughout as well as a glossary of key terms and checklists that therapists can use immediately in their practice.

    This book aims to implement a paradigm shift in the field and is essential reading for therapy students. It is invaluable reading for practicing therapists that did not receive training on working with neurodiverse clients.
