For introduction to family therapy courses.
A pragmatic, clinical approach focuses on the essential knowledge needed for the successful practice of family therapy
The Essentials of Family Therapy
examines the full scope of family therapy — its rich history, classic schools, and latest developments — with an increased emphasis on practical issues. With its focus on contemporary clinical practice, illustrative case studies, and extremely practical presentation, The Essentials of Family Therapy
helps readers gain a thorough understanding of why a therapy technique is successful and how they can apply it in their own practice.
The 7th Edition features new case studies with Reflect and Apply Questions to help students think about how to apply therapeutic principles; end-of chapter questions that are designed to help readers think critically about the principles in the chapter and consider how to apply them; and additional content highlighting the essential concepts in each chapter. New material that emphasises recent trends in clinical practice has been added, including: a revised Cognitive-Behavioral chapter that focuses on recent trends (Ch.9); a new section on families with transgender members (Ch. 10); and a new chapter about research (Ch. 14).
