Introduction

The Couples Research and Treatment Special Interest Group (Couples SIG) of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT, formerly known as Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy, or AABT) is a consortium of researchers and clinicians focused on couples research and practice. The Couples SIG was founded by a group of psychology researchers actively developing couples therapies. The Couples SIG is steadily growing in size and productivity and currently has 215 members (Eubanks-Fleming 2015). As a part of the ABCT, the Couples SIG promotes empirically supported treatment of couples and relationship problems both by promoting basic research into relationship functioning and clinical research into the assessment, prevention, and treatment of couple problems.
