The Essentials of Family Therapy provides a pragmatic, clinical approach that focuses on the essential knowledge needed for the successful practice of family therapy. The text 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, you'll gain an understanding of why a technique is successful and how to apply it.
The 7th Edition features new case studies with Reflect and Apply Questions to help you think about how to apply principles; end-of chapter questions to help you think critically about the principles in the chapter and how to apply them; and additional content highlighting key concepts in each chapter. New material emphasizes recent trends in clinical practice and includes a revised Cognitive-Behavioral chapter (Ch.9); a new section on families with transgender members (Ch. 10); and a new chapter about research (Ch. 14).
