Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Minuchin, family therapy pioneer and author of the classic text Families and Family Therapy , and Nichols ( No Place to Hide ), professor of psychiatry at Albany Medical College, provide an engrossing, lively account of Minuchin's work with families in crisis. His analyses and interventions reported here are dazzling: part science and part intuition, his portrayals of his clients are drawn with an artist's eye for detail. We observe him ferret out the roles family members lock themselves into as they interact in his office; we follow his thinking as he tests hypotheses and observes the effects of his interventions. A family's pain, he shows, may not lie in the apparent cause--the depressed father or the hyperactive child--but in the way all members relate. Including his own family history, Minuchin describes his approach so lucidly that readers will take a new look at their own families.

Thank you Dr. Minuchin for writing this book.

Minuchin writes in a way that makes you not want to put the book down until you get to the end, and then you want to read it again!

I studied Salvatore Minuchin and became thoroughly convinced of the accuracy of his theories. A friend recommended this book to me. I gave this book to another friend as a gift. Her husband quickly snagged it. She reports that they both are obtaining benefit.

Salvador Minuchin takes you through the life cycle, addressing common family concerns through illustrative case studies. He does a masterful job of keeping you engrossed in the moment-to-moment therapeutic interaction while contributing his inner thoughts regarding the case at hand, taking you step-by-step toward a more balanced family structure.

Highly recommend!

If you like Structural theory, you will love this book. Minuchin writes in a way that makes you not want to put the book down until you get to the end, and then you want to read it again! Truly very enjoyable as well as informative.
