The latest theory, research, and practice information for family therapy

The last twenty years have seen an explosion of new, innovative, and empirically supported therapeutic approaches for treating families. Mental health professionals working with families today apply a wide range of approaches to a variety of situations and clients using techniques based on their clinically and empirically proven effectiveness, their focus on specific individual and relational disorders, their applicability in various contexts, and their prominence in the field.

In this accessible and comprehensive text, each chapter covers specific problems, the theoretical and practical elements of the treatment approach, recommended intervention strategies, special considerations, supporting research, and clinical examples. The contributors provide step-by-step guidelines for implementing the approaches described and discuss particular issues that arise in different couple, family, and cultural contexts.

Handbook of Clinical Family Therapy covers treatment strategies for the most common problems encountered in family therapy, including:

  • Domestic violence
  • Adolescent defiance, anxiety, and depression
  • Trauma-induced problems
  • Stepfamily conflicts
  • ADHD disruption
  • Substance abuse in adults and adolescents
  • Couple conflict and divorce
  • Chronic illness

A detailed reference for today's best treatment strategies, the Handbook of Clinical Family Therapy brings together the top practitioners and scholars to produce an innovative and user-friendly guide for clinicians and students alike.
