Overview

Practicing therapist MacFarlane presents 15 contributions that explore the application of family therapy techniques to different conditions and discuss considerations of special populations. After a brief overview of the history of family therapy and an explanation of the treatment model, separate chapter are devoted to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder, borderline personality disorder, chronic mental illness, and suicidal patients. The chapters on special populations look at patients dealing drug abuse, brain injury, women, and the aging. Each chapter is presented with the same structure, discussing setting, treatment model, case examples, strengths and limitations, integration with psychiatric services, cultural and gender issues, and future directions.
