Description

In FAMILY THERAPY: AN OVERVIEW, SEVENTH EDITION, Irene and Herbert Goldenberg deliver an outstanding introduction to family therapy-based on traditional theoretical frameworks yet focused on the field's evolving models of practice. Completely updated and revised to reflect the state of family therapy today, the book examines and explains traditional and evolving viewpoints, perspectives, values, intervention techniques, and goals of family therapy and provides current, engaging, practice-oriented content that helps pave the way for students to become empathic and effective family therapists. The authors incorporate an array of pedagogical features, including lengthy case studies, clinical notes, multiple examples, tables, and charts that give instructors the flexibility to teach the course in their own style. These learning tools give added significance to topics and help students gain a sense of how the various family therapy techniques truly play out in practice. The case studies bring theory to life with transcripts of actual therapy sessions that demonstrate the practical applications of specific theories. FAMILY THERAPY: AN OVERVIEW is the complete resource for assisting students in mastering the many facets of family therapy and with new teaching tools, a more comprehensive and exciting package for instructors. Michael White, founder of Narrative Therapy, penned the foreword for the text.
