Format: Hardcover
I found a copy of this book at an old used book store about a year ago, and it stood on my shelf until yesterday. I regret not getting to it sooner because it is one of the best books on therapeutic technique I've ever read. Though it makes no mention of it on the covers, the book is specifically for family therapists. I wouldn't have even bought it if it did say it was for MFTs but I'm glad I was fooled in this way because I've already learned so much.

I'm really impressed with the way the book itself is laid out. It is designed to be read by practicing therapists and ideally therapists-in-training, and is split up into various sections (or stories) with multiple perspectives given by several different therapists. Each of these therapists has their own background and theory of therapy and the book does a great job of discussing how their theories and upbringings are influencing the way they work.

Dr. Rambo is from Texas, and even lived here in San Antonio for a while, so her anecdotes are particularly comforting to me.

I can already feel my techniques being sharpened by the little exercises throughout the book. And this book is making me interested in working with family issues, something I have never considered before.

I cannot wait to apply some of this stuff in practice (I'll get the chance a few months from now). I highly recommend this book to any beginning practitioner and to anybody who had previously not considered MFT.
