9780415894074: Family Assessment: Contemporary and Cutting-Edge Strategies (Family Therapy and Counseling)

In an era that demands ever-increasing levels of accountability and documentation, Family Assessment is a vital tool for clinicians. It covers more than one hundred assessment methods – both the most widely used strategies as well as those that are more specialized and issue-specific. Techniques and instruments for assessments are summarized concisely in tables and discussed in depth in the chapters, often by the experts who developed the approaches they describe. Each chapter is also supplemented by recommended strategies for utilizing the assessment tools, as well as by case studies and observational method matrices. Readers will find that the second edition of Family Assessment provides the same comprehensive evaluation and thorough analysis as the first edition but with a fully updated focus that will invigorate the work of researchers, educators, and clinicians.

"Encyclopedic in scope, systematically organized, and reader friendly. This volume will definitely be the go-to text for students, practitioners, and researchers seeking assessment measures and a myriad strategies for evaluating children, couples, and families."

―Gerald R. Weeks, PhD, professor of marriage and family therapy, University of Nevada-Las Vegas and coeditor of Couples in Treatment: Techniques and Approaches for Effective Practice, 3rd Ed

"This important book will surely become, like the first edition, a core resource for students, practicing clinicians, and family researchers."
