Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques 1st Edition, Kindle Edition
Family therapy is increasingly recognised as one of the evidence based psychotherapies. In contemporary therapeutic practice, family therapy is helpful across the age span and for distress caused by family conflict, trauma and mental health difficulties. Because of this, many psychotherapists integrate elements of family therapy within their approaches.
Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques provides a concise and jargon-free guide to 100 of the fundamental ideas and techniques of this approach.
Divided into helpful sections, it covers:
- Family therapy theory
- Essential family therapy practice
- Using family therapy techniques
- Common challenges in family therapy
- Contemporary debates and issues
- Self issues for family therapists.
Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques is an invaluable resource for psychotherapists and counsellors in training and in practice. As well as appealing to established family therapists, this latest addition to the 100 Key Points series will also find an audience with other mental health professionals working with families and interested in learning more about family therapy techniques.

I wish I had had access to a book like this when I was training in family therapy, yet I am now fortunate to have it sitting on my bookshelf." - Dion Leeuwenburg, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy, No. 2, 2010

I found the 'dealing with common challenges' section the most useful part. Very practical ideas as to how to embrace and deal with the challenges and complexities faced when working families, such as managing 'stuckness' 'resistance' 'blame' etc.
Highly recommended for students (I used it for my intermediate systemic course), or experienced practitioners looking to brush up on certain areas.
Its not an in depth guide, as some reviewers point out, but I don't think it sells itself as such. It gives a good. broad summary of topics/ techniques which can then be explored further using the references.
Also it doesn't have an index as other reviewers as pointed out, but I don't really feel it needs one - the contents are very thorough and each of the 100 sections are no more than 3 pages each!
