About this item

Written by a major figure in family therapy, this book was designed to work equally well as a course textbook and a resource for practicing therapists working with families. This is the third edition. Every chapter has been significantly revised to incorporate research and practice advances. There is expanded coverage of war-related and collective trauma. New chapters and appendices look at the challenge of resilience-oriented assessment for families at all stages of life. The writing is clear and the focus is practical; resilience here is defined and described as an approach. It is a strength-based approach that acknowledges difficult responses as common, and strengths and dysfunctions as collective as well as individual. Learned resilience is contrasted with learned helplessness, in families, groups, and communities. The text offers abundant examples and practice-based recommendations and techniques for family therapy. Students and professionals in all fields who counsel families will find it useful.
