What reviewers are saying about "Family Therapy: A Systemic Integration." . .
"As teaching students to think systematically is one of my primary course objectives, the Becvar and Becvar text could not provide a better main text for meeting that particular objective."
"The authors have modified original counseling theories and updated them so that they are more user friendly. When it is time for me to make a textbook change, I will be strongly inclined to adopt this text for use in my Family Counseling Class."
