In Couples and Illness, Dr. Tamara Goldman Sher demonstrates her approach to working with couples in which one or both partner suffers from an illness. The goal of this therapy is to help the couple understand how the illness or recovery process affects the couple's relationship, and identify resources that will help the couple to cope.

In this session, Dr. Sher helps a couple deal with older relationship issues that have affected their ability to rebound as a couple from the stress of a recent serious illness, concomitant surgery, and the return to health.
