What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"This book is the single best source that I am aware of for helping marriage and family therapy interns in implementing knowledge and skills as they begin and advance in working with couples and families. It is apparent that Dr. Mead has shared his professional lifetime of clinical supervision and training as he compiled this encyclopedic volume. Practicing professionals, as well as clinical interns, will greatly benefit from studying and applying information contained in this book."
Robert F. Stahmann, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus, Brigham Young University

"Becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist represents a significant step in the training literature in marriage and family therapy (MFT). It is a challenge to marriage and family therapists to apply an evidence-based approach to their work not unlike what MFTs expect of the physicians to whom they take themselves and their families for treatment. It is a plea to assess thoroughly and to demonstrate progress and success with the best science available. It is asking for the field to come of age. I commend this book as an important contribution to the training literature."
Douglas H. Sprenkle, Professor Emeritus, Purdue University Former Editor, Journal of Marital and Family Therapy
