This book illustrates the unique systemic approach of the Ingers who are well-known teachers and co-founders of the Family Studies Institute in Portland, Oregon. Their work combines elements of the reflective team approach with a model of co-therapy. It is a fresh and innovative application of systemic thinking to the field of family therapy. The book consists of a full-length description of one family consultation with detailed commentary on the process of the interview provided by the Ingers. The theoretical basis of their model is a carefully explained and the interview itself is discussed by a range of American and British therapists taking part in a family therapy exchange.
