9780898624847: Family Transitions: Continuity and Change Over the Life Cycle (The Guilford Family Therapy Series)

The notion that a "developmental difficulty'' underlies the appearance of clinical symptoms has become a time-honored tradition in family therapy just as it has been in individual therapy. Yet, unlike the well-established and well-researched models of child and adult development, those in family development are rudimentary. This volume gathers some of the most prominent family theorists, researchers, and clinicians to elucidate the specific dimensions and processes of spontaneous and therapeutically induced change over the family life cycle. The book introduces new conceptual models that integrate the temporality of the life cycle approach with systems theory. By their very nature, these models cut across therapeutic orientations and have important clinical applications.

Book Description Guilford Publications, United States, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Despite increasing interest in the family life cycle as a framework for family therapy, relatively little has been done to elucidate the specific dimensions and processes of spontaneous and therapeutically-induced change over the family life cycle. This volume gathers original contributions of some of the most prominent family theorists, researchers, and clinicians of our time to improve our understanding of these important and hitherto neglected domains. The book opens with a comprehensive overview by the editor that outlines contributions to the family life cycle framework from family sociology, and crisis theory. This is followed by a comparative analysis of developmental thinking, explicit or implicit, in the theory and interventions of the major family therapy approaches. Then divided into four parts, Family Transitions introduces new conceptual models that integrate the temporality of the life cycle approach with systems theory.By their very nature, these models cut across therapeutic orientations and have important clinical applications.
