    Amazing!

    Read this 5 years ago, still one of my favorite reads. Excellent insight into family therapy but reads as a novel. Could not put it down!

    Essential Reading for MFT's

    Anyone studying to be a Marriage and Family Therapist MUST read this book. Carl Whitaker and his co-therapist disclose intimate details of a family they see for over two years. The family is completely disengaged in the beginning and full of detouring, suicidal ideation and coalitions. They end up HEALTHY in the end...A MUST READ for sure!!!

    Excellent!

    This book is excellent. As a psychology student, it really helped me understand what actually happens in a family therapy session. I felt like I knew the family and could relate to their situation. It is a very easy and enjoyable read.

    Psychologist Recommends 'The Family Crucible'

    Nowhere in the literature on families and family therapy is there a book that is comparable to this one. It covers the abstract and difficult to master concepts in the study of family systems and family therapy in a form that's easy to digest. And the tale of this family's therapy reads like a novel, as the reader experiences what it's like to be inside the therapist's office. References to 70's culture may seem a bit dated, but the turmoil and struggle of family life is as fresh as if it were written yesterday.
