BOOK EXCERPT:

Marital and Family Therapy, now in its Fourth Edition, continues its tradition as a classic resource for psychiatrists and family therapists -- trainees and practitioners alike -- by combining psychiatric and integrative family models into a single framework. The recent growth and changes in the field, especially the movement away from narrowly based schools of therapy toward an integrative approach, prompted the authors to expand and rewrite the text. The authors have included the results of 20 years of successful field testing by trainees and have supplemented the text with well-placed case vignettes and charts. The authors have further renewed the appeal of this definitive text by 1) rewriting the discussion of how new attitudes and information about gender, culture, class, and race are affecting family theory building, 2) updating their text for compatibility with DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10, 3) adding a section on treating Axis I disorders by combining family therapy with medication, 4) adding a section on the new subspecialty of family systems medicine, 5) offering the latest on family therapy effectiveness and training, and 6) discussing afresh the ethical, financial, and professional issues facing therapists today. With two new authors, up-to-date references for the advanced therapist, and suggested readings for both instructor and student, this volume will spend little time on the shelf. Psychiatrists, family therapists, social workers, nurses, family education teachers, counselors, family physicians, and family law professionals will turn to this practical reference time and time again as they seek a better understanding of the evolving field of marital and family therapy.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Pastoral counselors, therapists-in-training, and clergy are usually introduced to one method of family assessment and treatment, which works better in some situations than in others. Integrative Family Therapy introduces the major schools of family therapy, proposes a tested model that integrates the various approaches, and illustrates how this model functions both for assessing and treating family problems. Seven central concepts are discerned as a way of understanding the various family therapies as a group. Then the major family therapy theories are discussed, including cognitive, family life cycle-developmental, interactional-communication, multigenerational, object relations, problem solving, and structural family. After examining their deep structures, an integrated model of six discrete moments is presented and illustrated. Charts direct the reader through the model and illustrate how the model is employed by means of several case studies.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Family Therapy and Systemic Practice is a collection of 20 essays about practice in family therapy and systemic consultation. It is written by the author of the treatment manual: Positive Practice: A Step by Step Guide to Family Therapy which was published in 1995. The present volume aims to answer a number of questions which arose from the first book, including the way in which Positive Practice evolved, the clinical context within which the practice occurred, and the ideas that informed the approach. The papers fall into three broad groupings. The first group deals with systemic consultation and child protection related issues. The second is concerned with specific clinical techniques for use mainly with multiproblem families. The remaining papers focus on empirical research of particular relevance to the practice of family therapy.
