Book Description

Here is one of the few books that focuses explicitly on including children in family therapy sessions. The contributors to this enlightening volume are seasoned family therapists of various theoretical perspectives who work in a variety of settings and include children of all ages in their therapy practices. Recognizing that many practicing therapists are not comfortable including children, they address the treatment and training issues and provide extensive case studies and fascinating background material on their own early involvement in the practice. Children in Family Therapy will be extremely valuable to family therapists of all levels of experience. For the veterans, the cases that are different in approach from their own will be particularly informative. Less experienced therapists will find here a basic introduction and a clear description of the range of clinical practice in family therapy.
