Overview

'This book is the capstone of the brilliant contributions of Bob Beavers to family assessment, treatment, research, and theory. Here, in collaboration with Buck Hampson, he carries forward from earlier, pioneering studies of family health and competence, showing how differences between families can be systematically--and systemically--described. Thereby, more appropriate, well-targeted intervention strategies can be selected.'

In section 1 the authors discuss the two Beavers Interactional Scales. These assess families on two crucial dimensions: competence and style. The scales are supplemented by self-report questionnaires. Using these assessment tools, the therapist can determine into which of nine groups a particular family falls. In section 2 the authors present general concepts regarding family intervention. They then discuss specific attitudes and strategies beneficial with families from different groupings. Annotation c.
