IT covers the difficulties associated with planning the first constulation, strategies for family assessment and problem formulation, methods for developing a theraprutic contract and goal setting, plans for conducting therapy and trouble shooting resistance, and ways of concluding therapy. It includes many diagrams and checklists and is essentially jargon-free. Practical exercises are given a the end of each chapter, making it an ideal training resource for any introductory course.

Special issues discussed include adjunctive individual sessions, convening network meetings, jointly managing statutory and therapeutic responsibilities, ethical decision making, clinical audit and professional development.
