Overview

This second edition of The Essentials of Family Therapy examines the rich history, classic schools, and latest developments of family therapy while emphasizing clinical practice. This text is designed for students of Family Therapy, Practice with Children and Families, and Marriage and Family Counseling in Counseling and Psychology programs, as well as for therapists in practice.

In comparison with the classic work from these authors, titled Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, this volume contains more up-to-date descriptions of the latest models, an expanded treatment of basic clinical practice, new material on research, ethics, and diversity, and a thorough, consistent emphasis on clinical techniques throughout. The Essentials of Family Therapy contains less abstract theory than its larger predecessor, and highlights the accomplishments and techniques of successful contemporaries in the field.

Now you can jumpstart your students' careers in Social Work by packaging this text with the Career Center at no extra charge. The Career Center provides your students with access to a qualified Social Work career specialist for one-on-one assistance with resume building, interviewing skills, networking and more.
