While there are many volumes that survey the field of family therapy, Family Therapy Sourcebook provides something different: a roadmap to classic and state-of-the-art work on foundational issues in theory, research, and practice. More than a textbook or a summary of primary sources, this volume is a comprehensive guide to original source materials for the student or teacher of family therapy. Covering the traditional family therapies and more, each chapter presents a selective annotated bibliography, highlights key concepts and clinical techniques, discusses research issues, and proposes creative teaching strategies. Describing helpful assignments and experiential learning exercises for educators, the authors share valuable expertise gained from years of teaching.
