"In this volume, Mike Nichols tells the story of family therapy - and tells it very well. It's hard to imagine a more readable and informative guide to the field. . . . It is a thorough and thoughtful, fair and balanced guide to the ideas and techniques that make family therapy such an exciting enterprise. Dr. Nichols has managed to be comprehensive without being tedious. Perhaps the secret is the engaging style of his writing . . . this superb book has long set the standard of excellence as the best introduction and guide to the practice of family therapy."

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
