Editorial Reviews

Review

Among family therapists, Minuchin is recognized as a most original innovator, a superb clinician, and an outstanding teacher. He has been able to transmit all of his background and experience into this excellent book. Anyone who has a serious interest in family therapy today will want to have and to know this book. (Journal of Psychotherapy)

For the individual therapist searching for a better family model, Families and Family Therapy is recommended at the top of any list of acquisitions. It is doubtful whether any other family therapy publication today can match it. (Contemporary Psychology)

Minuchin is a master not only of the art of Family Therapy, but of informative prose as well. Very specific techniques for responding to a range of family dynamics are presented along with relevant theory and poignant vignettes. Though developed in the 1970's, Minuchin's vision for sparking change by "joining" and then working from within families remains powerful and relevant. The techniques in this well written manual resemble those of the modern Narrative Therapy movement, but are presented in a fashion both accessable to the Family Therapy novice and usefull to the seasoned professional.

I love this book! Bought it used with a bunch of other psychology books, didn't think much of it, but it turned out to be not only very useful, but very enjoyable to read. Minuchin is one of my very favorite therapists to watch and to read about, this book is like having him sit with you and explain his theories in detail. It is filled with case examples and transcripts of actual sessions. Not sure the book is going to turn me into a "master" like him, but it makes me feel like I have a few more very helpful tools in my family therapy toolbox! Highly recommended!

The Book Family Therapy Techniques is an excellent tool for new counselors. The book provides numerous family situations with an array of treatment approaches that a therapist can use to assist families. The various techniques used by the therapist help them improve relationships between parents, siblings, grandparents and children.

Another great book on Structural therapy. When Minuchin writes, it feels like he is speaking directly to you. Not many books are both educational and enjoyable, but his are. If you are interested in studying Structural, you want this book.

Minuchin is a genius therapist, but also writes in a way that makes it easy to learn his structural approach. Definitely a must read for all family therapists.
