Publisher Description

This current, engaging, and practice-oriented text is your complete resource for mastering the many facets of family therapy. In this ninth edition, the authors examine and explain key viewpoints, perspectives, values, intervention techniques, and goals of family therapy -- featuring practice-oriented content to help you become an empathic and effective family therapist. Color-coded boxes highlight key aspects of family therapy, such as family diversity, evidence-based practice research, 'Thinking Like a Clinician' exercises, case studies, clinical notes, and therapeutic encounters. Examples illustrate family therapists from many professions, including social work, MFT, psychology, and counseling. You'll also find up-to-date material representing the latest thinking on central issues and topics, including increased attention to LGBTQ families and alternative forms of family life and to gender, culture, and ethnic considerations.
