Summary

This masterful guide to the art and science of family therapy elucidat es the essential skills common to all family interventions. Rather tha n advocating one best approach, the author shows that there are multip le ways of working, and the best is often that which suits the therapi st's own personality, values, and skills. Beautifully written and enha nced by detailed case material and hands-on exercises, the book outlin es the basics of systemic thinking and empowers readers to expand thei r range of therapeutic options. Illuminating the delicate yet powerful balance between craft and creativity, Robert Taibbi helps therapists at all levels of experience to more fully utilize the power of family therapy.
