This was a nice collection of essays on how to view family therapy through another person's perspective. A variety of viewpoints were offered, though our teacher felt it was lacking in the LGBT lens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actualizing main stream family therapy, April 27, 2009
This review is from: Re-Visioning Family Therapy, Second Edition: Race, Culture, and Gender in Clinical Practice (Revisioning Family Therapy: Race, Culture, & Gender in) (Hardcover)
Hardy and McGoldrick point that it is necessary to consider that dominant ideologies have deep impact in the family therapists interventions and comprehension of the interpersonnal dynamics of families. The chapters offer many provocative reflections about ways to reconsider our preconceptions. The book offers a review of main stream family therapy in order to actualize it in a society more democratic and with multiple cultural backgrounds.

This review is from: Re-Visioning Family Therapy, Second Edition: Race, Culture, and Gender in Clinical Practice (Revisioning Family Therapy: Race, Culture, & Gender in) (Hardcover)
This book has different perspectives and it touches on both familiar and unfamiliar topics involving Race/Culture/Gender in Family Therapy. A good classroom book and not a boring read.

This is a great book, and covers family therapy from the multicultural perspective. The narratives McGoldrick gives of her life are great insight and cause us to ponder how we may or may not think in similar ways - excellent text!
