Description

Use these interventions and treatments to help people with mental health problems and their families!

Family Therapy and Mental Health: Innovations in Theory and Practice explores the application of family therapy approaches to the treatment of a variety of mental health problems. A variety of treatment modalities are used with patients and their families to address these problems, including family psychoeducational approaches, the McMaster Model, cognitive behavioral family therapy, brief therapy, and systemic and narrative approaches.

Each chapter of Family Therapy and Mental Health examines the gender and cultural issues that are relevant to the population and model it describes, and includes a case example. In addition, each chapter describes how the model is integrated with psychiatric services and examines the use of medication in each case.
