Summary

Summary

This new edition of Irene and Herbert Goldenberg's best-selling book takes readers on an examination of the history, development, training, research, and interventions of the rich field of family therapy, including a basic introduction to family systems theory and the family life cycle framework. On each page, Goldenberg and Goldenberg convey enthusiasm for the theories and practices in the field. Theory is brought to life through transcripts of actual therapy sessions, while discussions of cultural diversity examine its implications for family diagnosis, treatment, research, and training. This Fifth Edition provides expanded coverage of cognitive-behavioral family therapy and transgenerational family therapy. Plus, three new chapters make FAMILY THERAPY: AN OVERVIEW the most current book you'll find in the field.
