Overview

Reaching out to families in the everyday settings in which they live can be a powerful mode of therapeutic intervention, particularly for clients who face complex, multiple problems. This volume presents a practical framework for conducting family therapy sessions in the home, school, and community. Guided by extensive clinical case material, practitioners learn how to utilize out-of-office sessions to meet the people who are influential in clients' lives; observe the life realities of children, adolescents, and parents; and identify resources that can be mobilized to produce change. Detailed strategies are presented to help families navigate the overlapping demands of multiple agencies and institutions; deal with the effects of racism and other societal stressors; and manage and prevent such problems as substance abuse, school drop-out, and child abuse.
