Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents an approach to intervention with incestuous families which focuses on both individual and systemic dynamics and seeks to rebalance the relationships within the family and restructure certain aspects of individual family members' sexuality and personality. Chapters deal with systemic assessment, boundaries and structural issues in family treatment, marital therapy in incestuous families, and working with the legal, social service, and managed care systems.
