Exploring the ways that clients' lives, and family therapy itself, are constrained by larger forces of racial, cultural, sexual, and class-based inequality, this groundbreaking volume expands the boundaries of the field and works toward truly inclusive clinical practice. Editor Monica McGoldrick - whose earlier Ethnicity and Family Therapy provides in-depth portraits of the family systems of more than 40 ethnic groups--here takes up vital cultural issues that cut across all ethnicities. Integrating theoretical exposition, case vignettes, and evocative autobiographical narratives, contributors offer concrete suggestions for improving family therapy training and developing services that minority families may experience as more relevant to their lives.
