In this practice-based book, authors Hanna and Brown show beginners how to move from practice of individual therapy to the practice of family therapy. The authors help students move toward integration of the different approaches to family therapy, encourage students to develop multiple views of a problem, and integrate common skills from various traditional and contemporary therapeutic models. The first part of the book compares and contrasts the major schools of family therapy, while the second and third parts cover basic assessment and treatment skills.

"The book walks any new therapist through the stages that often organize the family therapeutic process. The authors do this while keeping the reader aware of the various models and conceptual frameworks that have guided the field until now."
"This book provides a comprehensive summary of the current models of family therapy in an abbreviated but clear format. Yet also focuses the student on the practical integration of the ideas and methods these models developed so as to quickly outfit the student with the knowledge and skills needed to begin working with families."
