Trauth More than 1 year ago
This book was part of my required readings for one of my MFT classes. Out of all the books, this had to be my least favorite. The print on the pages were not clear, there were words spelled incorrectly, and the use of, "however" and "on the other hand" is used constantly!!! There are other books that explain System Theories a lot clearer.
