Book Description

Published in 1990, A Systematic Harpoon Into Family Games is a valuable contribution to the field of Family Therapy, using games that were utilised in a workshop in Finland, August 1986, organized by the Family Therapists' Association and the Association for Mental Health. This book was written for professionals who every day, within either the public or the private sector, meet families, couples, or individual patients. The author’s main concern was to supply less experienced colleagues with a working tool which could help them on a clinical level.
