Overview

This masterful guide to the art and science of family therapy elucidates the essential skills common to all family interventions. Rather than advocating one best approach, the author shows that there are multiple ways of working, and the best is often that which suits the therapist's own personality, values, and skills.

Illuminating the delicate yet powerful balance between craft and creativity, Robert Taibbi helps therapists at all levels of experience to more fully utilize the power of family therapy.
