In response to popular demand, Rudi Dallos and Ros Draper have produced a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the theory and practice of family therapy and systemic practice. This impressive book offers an overview of the core conceptual framework, illustrated throughout by clinical examples. The chapters contain historical overviews of the development of systemic ideas as well as a thorough description of the core ideas. The book is partly structured by means of a three-phase conceptual map. The three phases detail the development of the early formulations from ideas based predominantly in systems theory, the move to constructivist approaches and finally contemporary practice inspired by social constructionist and associated narrative therapies. The coverage also includes chapters on emotions and attachments in families and an accessible chapter on research methods with a set of illustrative studies. An innovative feature is the inclusion of a set of resources which can be employed by the individual reader or as part of teaching workshops. These include skill guides at the end of chapters which clearly illustrate the practice of core concepts and a substantial set of appendices containing topic reading lists, formats for exploration and glossary. Overall the book is conceptually comprehensive as well as providing an accessible 'hands-on' resource.

This long-awaited book is the first to offer a complete and clear presentation of the therapy of the Milan Associates, Luigi Boscolo and Gianfranco Cecchin. Based on cybernetic theory, their work has had dramatic success in helping families change behavior. This practical and enlightening book uses clinical cases and the fascinating conversations among the four authors to examine the relationship between Milan theory and practice.Transcripts of sessions conducted by Boscolo and Cecchin—which include a family that is hiding a history of incest and one dominated by an anorectic girl—provide vivid examples of family interaction and therapeutic imagination. In the accompanying conversations with Boscolo and Cecchin about these sessions, Hoffman and Penn take us behind the scenes to show how the therapists think through and conduct their therapy. These highly readable conversations clarify the essentials of the therapy, including hypothesizing, circular questioning, positive connotation, and crafting interventions. Like Milan therapy itself, the interviews are recursive; new ideas about the therapy feed back into the conversations and stimulate further revelations. A lengthy introduction sets the Milan approach in historical context, and introductions to the individual cases highlight the main ideas.

Postmodernist ideas are widely used in family therapy. However, it is argued that these ideas have their limits in meeting the richness and complexity of human experience and therapy practice. Family Therapy Beyond Postmodernism examines postmodernism and its expressions in family therapy, raising questions about: * reality and realness * the subjective process of truth * the experience of self. Alongside identifying the difficulties in any sole reliance on narrative and constructionist ideas, this book advocates the value of selected psychoanalytic ideas for family therapy practice, in particular: * attachment and the unconscious * transference, projective identification and understandings of time * psychoanalytic ideas about thinking and containment in the therapeutic relationship. Family Therapy Beyond Postmodernism offers a sustained critical discussion of the possibilities and limits of contemporary family therapy knowledge, and develops a place for psychoanalytic ideas in systemic thinking and practice. It will be of great interest to family therapists, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals.

Second Thoughts on the Theory and Practice of the Milan Approach to Family Therapy is a full discussion of the way the original techniques of the Milan Approach have been affected by current thinking in the family therapy field. Hypothesizing, neutrality and circularity, for example, are all redefined in response to the challenge of new clinical problems, such as child abuse, and new thinking from areas such as linguistics and feminine. The authors refer back to their original article "Working With the Milan Method: 20 Questions" in order to chart the changes which have taken place over the last ten years and, similarly, richly illustrate the present work with clinical examples.

Systemic theory offers a valuable framework for integrating the diverse ideas found throughout the mental health arena in both theory and clinical practice. With this accessible book, the authors take you on an enjoyable and coherent journey through systemic theory. They then review the body of research into family therapy and conclude with a critical review of major recent developments in theory and application. At the end of several chapters are reflexive notes containing exercises that relate to the ideas and processes found within the chapter to further develop the reader's understanding. The conclusion draws together the ideas found throughout the book, with particular emphasis on the interlocking triangle of formulation, intervention and evaluation and how this will impact on systemic practice in the future. While this book will be an invaluable introduction to family systems theory and practice for clinical psychology training courses, plugging a gap that Vetere and Dallos have identified as one of their motives for writing it, its remit runs much wider. It will prove an essential companion for any professional working in the public services, whether systemically trained or not. It covers an impressive range of theory, practice and research and, as such, is firmly grounded both in the application to different client groups and in the necessity for most practitioners of integrating different therapeutic approaches.
