Practical Guide to Family Therapy: Structured Guidelines and Key Skills


Product Description

Published Australia, 2011
The authors have brought together a group of writers who share their commitment to innovative and contextual practice, grounded in systemic family therapy but drawing on a variety of other models including structural family therapy, brief solution-focused therapy and narrative therapy. Each chapter focuses on one part of the family therapy process, from first session to last. Core practices - engagement, the questioning process, the use of the self in therapy, establishing parental hierarchy, establishing safety while building the therapeutic relationship, dealing with breached relationships, couple sessions, family-of-origin sessions and working with adolescents and children - are emphasised. Therapeutic interactions and case studies are a feature.
