This reissued version of a work first published 30 years ago, deals with ground rules for the practice of psychotherapy, setting out the basic tenets of strategic therapy, presenting various approaches to therapy from the viewpoint of paradoxical communication and offering an historical overview of the origins of family therapy.

The introduction to the book has been revised and updated. The original work was published as a result of an investigation into the whole field of therapy undertaken by the George Bateson research project in 1963.

From the Inside Flap:

This classic volume deals with the strategies of both psychotherapists and clients as they maneuver each other in the process of treatment. How a therapist induces a client to change is described within a framework of interpersonal theory and directive family therapy. This work represents a step from the study of therapy in terms of the individual to therapy as communication between at least two people.In this volume, Jay Haley acknowledges his debt to the Gregory Bateson research project exploring the nature of communication as well as to Dr. Milton H. Erickson, M.D. for the many hours of conversations and a new perspective on the nature of therapy. The reactions to this different view continue to be controversial today in the therapy field.

About the Author:

Jay Haley studied with Dr. Erickson for 17 years. He is a major editor of Erickson's works and has authored many books about him. Mr. Haley has been professor at Stanford University, Howard University, the University of Maryland, and is currently professor at the California School of Professional Psychology.
