This text offers a straightforward, comprehensive overview of both traditional and evolving theoretical models of family therapy and intervention techniques as well as a discussion of clinical issues unique to family therapy practice. Aiming to prepare students to develop beginning proficiency in family therapy, the authors outline major family therapy models in detail, including a step by step description of concepts, theories, skills, and techniques as well as a history of each model and its conceptual and theoretical underpinnings. The text also provides extensive case illustrations of family interviews that identify the specific stages, clinical issues, concepts, theories and techniques associated with each model.
This core text is designed for graduate level courses such as Family Therapy, Marriage and Family Therapy, Marriage and Family Counseling, Family Systems Theory, and Family Counseling in departments of social work, psychology, nursing, education, or human services.
excellent text. It includes a very reasonable and "deep" approach to multiculturalism in family therapy.
This is a helpful book for those interested in family therapy as it considers the links between family therapy and a range of theoretical concepts as well as the development of family therapy as an intervention.
This book will assist any social work practitioner or health professional interested in family work per se.
The history of family therapy provides a most interesting read and the chapter on dealing with crisis and trauma very insightful.
A really accessible introductory text on family therapy which offers a comprehensive of the key theories and concepts Well-structured and laid out with helpful case examples.
Very good text for graduate class. Comprehensive for those students who are looking to understand the vocabulary, models and the needs of families and children in particular. This is a good introductory course text. As an instructor, I enjoy having discussion questions in the book to refer to in class and to assign for extra credit assignment. I am using a companion book because the focus of this class is counseling addictive families.
Excellent text. Will continue to use in future courses. Readable and thorough
Having thought two classes the Family Systemic Counselling Theroy and Skills module this year I would recommend that this book be added to the core text book list in our bibliography for this module. This book covers most of the topics in the narratives for this module and it would be of great benifit to our students.
An excellently written and structured book, giving the reader an excellent overview of all aspects of Family Therapy.
Excellent text. Will be considered for next cohort in 2012.
The book best addresses the Social Work Concentration of Globally-Focused Family-Centered Practice.
