In this practice-based book, authors Hanna and Brown show beginners how to move from practice of individual therapy to the practice of family therapy. The authors help students move toward integration of the different approaches to family therapy, encourage students to develop multiple views of a problem, and integrate common skills from various traditional and contemporary therapeutic models. The first part of the book compares and contrasts the major schools of family therapy, while the second and third parts cover basic assessment and treatment skills.
