From Publishers Weekly:

Minuchin, family therapy pioneer and author of the classic text Families and Family Therapy , and Nichols ( No Place to Hide ), professor of psychiatry at Albany Medical College, provide an engrossing, lively account of Minuchin's work with families in crisis. His analyses and interventions reported here are dazzling: part science and part intuition, his portrayals of his clients are drawn with an artist's eye for detail. We observe him ferret out the roles family members lock themselves into as they interact in his office; we follow his thinking as he tests hypotheses and observes the effects of his interventions. A family's pain, he shows, may not lie in the apparent cause--the depressed father or the hyperactive child--but in the way all members relate. Including his own family history, Minuchin describes his approach so lucidly that readers will take a new look at their own families.

Book Description Free Press. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 304 pages. At the centre of peoples lives is the family, which can be and should be a haven from the harshness of the outside world. Unfortunately, the source of peoples greatest hope for happiness often turns out to be the source of their worst disappointments. Now, the family therapist, Salvador Minuchin unravels the knots of family dynamics against the background of his own odyssey from an extended Argentinian Jewish family to his innovative treatment of troubled families. Through the stories of families who have sought his help, the reader is taken inside the consulting room to see how families struggle with self-defeating patterns of behaviour. Through his confrontational style of therapy, Dr Minuchin demonstrates the strict but unseen rules that trap family members in stifling roles, and illuminates methods for helping families untangle systems of disharmony. In Dr Minuchins therapy there are no villains and no victims, only people trying to deal with various problems at each stage of the family life cycle. Minuchin understands the family as a system of interconnected lives, not as a dysfunctional group. Each story of a therapeutic encounter brings a new understanding of familiar dilemmas and classic mistakes, and recounts Dr Minuchins creative solutions. At a time when so many families are stressed to the breaking point by economic and social pressures, this book shows the reader the hidden resources to be found at the heart of the family itself. Dr Minuchin has also written Families and Family Therapy, Family Kaleidoscope, Family Therapy Techniques and No Place to Hide. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
