Basic family therapy
Despite the advances that have occurred since the first edition of this book appeared in 1981, the aims of Basic Family Therapy remain the same. These are to provide a clear, easily read and readily understandable introduction to family therapy, and to guide the reader to sources of further information by providing a comprehensive list of references. No prior knowledge of family therapy has been assumed and it is hoped that the book will be useful not only to those who are new to family therapy but also to those in the early phases of their training.
