Great book! I will definitely be keeping this book, as I move forward with my MFT career. It will be very useful and a great reference for future questions I may have. Not selling this one back!
Many clients worry or have the wrong idea of Family Therapy. This was helpful to have to break the anxiety and as a recourse. Amber Kuntz
I needed this for college. Excellent information. Even i understood what was being said.
This textbook was used in a Marriage and Family Theories course, in addition to another family theories book. I felt this was an easy to read book with pertinent material in exploring family systems and counseling practices. It was useful in developing a stronger understanding of theories in psychology practices, but more specifically, in exploring various theorists and their counseling styles. I especially liked the examples and case studies provided, as it brought to light the intricacies of how theory and counseling practices actually play out in a therapeutic setting. In addition, it was helpful to get a better sense of when to utilize one technique or another.
