Follow a family therapist’s narrative diary as he documents the process of working with the Salazars, as they explore each stage of their relationship-from courtship through the departure of the children from the home.
This unique casebook provides an in-depth, personal account from the counselor’s perspective, while also looking at the personal viewpoints of family members. Each major stage of the family life is presented in a separate chapter and the book includes discussions of the effects of gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation on individuals and families.
Beginning with an initial phone call for help, the author traces one family's treatment using collaborative therapy and provides detailed accounts of actual clinical sessions. The family problems addressed include marriage, in-laws, rebellious teenagers, sibling rivalry, infidelity, and divorce. Written primarily for therapists.
