In comparison with the classic work from these authors, titled Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, 5/e, this volume contains more up-to-date descriptions of the latest models, an expanded treatment of basic clinical practice, a rich description of the contemporary influences on the field, and a thorough, consistent emphasis on clinical techniques throughout.
