Now in its second edition, this text introduces readers to the rich history and practice of Marriage and Family Therapy, with 32 professionals from across the US presenting their knowledge in their areas of expertise. This blend of approaches and styles gives this text a unique voice and makes it a comprehensive resource for graduate students taking their first course in Marriage and Family Therapy. The book is divided into three sections: Part 1 focuses on the components on which 21st century family therapy is based and summarizes the most recent changes made to not only therapeutic interventions, but to the very concept of “family.” Part 2 presents an overview of the 7 major theoretical models of the field: structural, strategic, Milan, social constructionist, experiential, transgenerational, and cognitive-behavioral family therapy. Each chapter in this section • Focuses on the founder of the theory, its theoretical tenants, and its key techniques • Shows how the model focuses on diversity • Presents the research that supports the approach Part 3 addresses specific treatment areas that are common to marriage and family therapists, such as sex therapy, pre-marital therapy, research, and ethics and legal issues. As an introduction to the field of Marriage and Family Therapy, this volume stands above the rest. Not only will readers gain an understanding of the rich history of the field and its techniques, but they will also see a complete picture of the context in which families are embedded, such as gender, culture, spirituality, and sexual orientation. This knowledge is the key to understanding what differentiates Marriage and Family Therapy from individual psychotherapy. Glossaries, case studies, tables, figures, and appendices appear generously throughout the text to present this information and give students a thorough overview to prepare them for their professional lives.

Marital and Family Therapy, now in its Fourth Edition, continues its tradition as a classic resource for psychiatrists and family therapists -- trainees and practitioners alike -- by combining psychiatric and integrative family models into a single framework. The recent growth and changes in the field, especially the movement away from narrowly based schools of therapy toward an integrative approach, prompted the authors to expand and rewrite the text. The authors have included the results of 20 years of successful field testing by trainees and have supplemented the text with well-placed case vignettes and charts. The authors have further renewed the appeal of this definitive text by 1) rewriting the discussion of how new attitudes and information about gender, culture, class, and race are affecting family theory building, 2) updating their text for compatibility with DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10, 3) adding a section on treating Axis I disorders by combining family therapy with medication, 4) adding a section on the new subspecialty of family systems medicine, 5) offering the latest on family therapy effectiveness and training, and 6) discussing afresh the ethical, financial, and professional issues facing therapists today. With two new authors, up-to-date references for the advanced therapist, and suggested readings for both instructor and student, this volume will spend little time on the shelf. Psychiatrists, family therapists, social workers, nurses, family education teachers, counselors, family physicians, and family law professionals will turn to this practical reference time and time again as they seek a better understanding of the evolving field of marital and family therapy.
