'A first-rate collection of theoretical perspectives, treatment descriptions, and research reviews. An excellent resource for both psychotherapy researchers and practitioners. A rich compendium of ideas and evidence, written by distinguished theorists and researchers in the field; the book provides clear descriptions of what we now know about child and family therapy, plus provocative ideas for future research and practice. This fine book offers well-written accounts of major treatment approaches, evidence on their effects, and illustrative applications to specific problems and populations, all situated within a rich conceptual framework. The contributors are leaders in the field who have important things to say about the past, present, and future of intervention with children and families.'
