This text is an integration of the major models of family therapy broken into assessment and treatment phases. It is a how-to, practice-based book which is compatible with traditional reviews of family therapy theories and provides direction to entry-level clinicians as they begin to practice. This book shows beginners how to get from individual therapy to family therapy. It includes discussions and examples of newer models in the field, as well as traditional models. It combines competency-based ideas with practical examples of how to begin and proceed through the stages of family therapy from the intake interview through termination. For beginning family therapists, this book provides a framework for translating diverse models of family therapy into manageable skills and principles. For educators and supervisors, the book provides illustrations of fundamental skills and a review of the process of family therapy which helps the training process proceed according to stages and specific interventions.
