An international celebration of the work of Florence W. Kaslow!

Family Therapy Around the World: A Festschrift for Florence W. Kaslow celebrates the life and work of the distinguished family therapist with an international collection of essays that reflects the dynamic state of clinical practice, research, and theory. Professionals and practitioners from 15 countries honor Dr. Kaslow’s pioneering contributions to family therapy and family psychology by offering practical solutions to the real, everyday problems that affect today’s world. The essays are varied and extensive, incorporating cultural and social factors to explore new territory in family therapy through cutting-edge research, clinical cases, and theoretical developments.

Family Therapy Around the World recognizes the profound influence of Dr. Kaslow, who was instrumental in the adoption of the Journal of Family Psychotherapy as the official journal of the International Family Therapy Association (IFTA). The spirit of her work flows through the book’s essays, which represent the latest thinking and practice developments from clinicians, theoreticians, and researchers around the world. The book paints a clear portrait of the current state of family therapy across the globe, including contributions from Japan; the United Kingdom; Israel; India; Argentina; Russia; Sweden; Iceland; Yugoslavia; Italy; Australia; Norway; Chile; and the United States.

Topics examined in Family Therapy Around the World include:

  • working with abusing families (United Kingdom)
  • family life in an atmosphere of chronic stress and social transformation (Yugoslavia)
  • adult children dealing with parental divorce (Italy)
  • exploring culture in practice (United Kingdom and India)
  • fathers who make a difference (Argentina)

  • working toward triadic communication with problematic families (Japan)
  • and much more!
