Family therapy review; contrasting contemporary models.


Family therapy review; contrasting contemporary models.

Ed. by Anne Rambo et al.



277 pages



Writing for beginning and experienced therapists, Rambo (family therapy, Nova Southeastern U.) et al. assemble 66 chapters that use one hypothetical case to demonstrate the applications of various family therapy models, namely psychoanalytic/experiential, intergenerational, structural and strategic, brief therapy, narrative, collaborative, integrative, psychoeducational, and couples therapy models. Therapists who practice in the US, Australia, Mexico, and Canada apply their model to the same case to show what it would look like in practice, and each section includes an introduction to the history of specific groups of models and comments comparing and contrasting groups to others, as well as an update on current use. They include introductory chapters on family therapy and its underlying theoretical concepts, common skills, requirements for practice, and issues like diversity, evidence and efficacy, and faith and spirituality, and end with overviews of recent applications to alternative settings and unconventional populations, such as military families, in schools, equine-assisted approaches, international family therapy, medical family therapy, and collaborative family law.
