Description:

In this engaging new book, authors Franklin and Jordan work in conjunction with well-known contributors from the field to present an applied discussion of current trends in today's practice environments. The book's comprehensive overview of different practice models in family therapy prepares students for work in today's practice contexts of managed behavioral health care and short-term treatment. The authors present the history, theory, and techniques of numerous models, including: structural, strategy-based, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, post-modern practice, psychoeducational, and family preservation perspectives. Family Practice includes detailed case transcripts and practice examples in every chapter that enhance its practice-friendly approach to learning. You'll also find sections in each chapter on: consistency within social work practice, research support, critiques, and relevance for use in managed care. Additional chapters cover family assessment, gender issues, gay and lesbian families, ethnic families, and family policy issues; a concluding chapter focuses on new directions in brief family practice.
