Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The chapters on the schools of family therapy are very effective: clear, well-organized, up-to-date, and accompanied by helpful examples and tables."

"I use the Goldenberg [and] Goldenberg text because of its clear review and overview of some of the major models of Family Therapy. My students and I generally find the discussion of concepts clear and informative."

"The Goldenbergs do a wonderful job in creating a balanced presentation of family therapy approaches. I was initially introduced to the works of the Goldenbergs in my own graduate studies many years ago. It provided me with a wonderful introduction to family therapy approaches as a beginning clinician. Now that I am a "seasoned" family therapist and a full time professor, I want my students to learn from the best!"

"I have closely reviewed this textbook and love it. It is clearly written and is perfect for our first year graduate students."

Key strengths include: "a more comprehensive section on narrative therapy, cultural diversity was incorporated well, online/internet component, and enrichment workbook."
