Description:

Critically examining many professional assumptions about "difficult" families, the book outlines concepts and clinical practices that support the development of a respectful, constructive, and effective therapeutic relationship. Highlighted are ways to engage reluctant families, collaboratively set future-oriented therapy goals, and use externalizing conversations to help families make needed changes and develop communities of support. The book expands our focus beyond the family to include both the professional helping system and the broader sociocultural context within which clients are embedded.
