For educators and supervisors alike, The Practice of Family Therapy: Key Elements Across Models, Second Edition illustrates the fundamental skills necessary for family therapists, and it reviews family therapy as a process with discernible stages and specific interventions (helpful at any stage of your training or career!).
Families are more than the sum of their individuals. Midori and Brown (U. of Louisville) organize the text's three sections per the logical order of the therapeutic process: from theory to practice, structure and experience, and relationships and directions. The final chapter integrates the basic elements and stages of eight models of family and marriage therapy presented via case reviews with "behind the mirror"commentary. Appends the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Code of Ethics. An instructor's manual is available. The date of the first edition is unspecified.
