Description:

This comprehensive, yet user-friendly survey of the field of marriage and family therapy emphasizes the systemic/cybernetic perspective. The systemic-cybernetic framework helps readers understanding people and families in context. The text divided into three sections including "The Systemic Framework," "The Practice of Family Therapy," and "The Systemic Practitioner" includes historical information, current developments, and ongoing debates. Various family and developmental theories are integrated into a ldquo;dynamic process modelrdquo; for viewing and understanding family interactions and relationships. The family therapy models considered include psychodynamic, natural systems, experiential, structural, communications, strategic, and behavioral/cognitive as well as several postmodern approaches. Within the context of practice, Assessment; Intervention; Training/Supervision; Research; and Epistemological Challenges are described and discussed
