Counseling today's families
In this thorough revision of their practical, carefully researched book, the Goldenbergs focus on "doing" family therapy with different types of families, including single-parent-led families, blended families, cohabiting heterosexual couples, gay and lesbian couples, dual-career families, and ethnically diverse minority families. The authors examine current family structures and living arrangements, detail common problem areas from a family systems perspective, and offer intervention guidelines for working effectively with each family type.
