"101 Interventions in Family Therapy" features contributions by a diverse group of therapists that includes well-known leaders in the field, "therapists on the street", and faculty of family therapy training programmes. Each clinician has presented a creative and useful intervention beginning with a complete description of the method, followed by the specific indications and contraindications for its application, and concluding with a particular case illustration. These stories document interventions that work, so therapists at all levels can learn from them and incorporate them into their work with families. Practicing clinicians may learn what works for other therapists while graduate-level students and beginning counsellors will benefit from the integration of theory and practice exemplified in the practical case examples. The reader may find insight and treatment methods on critical family therapy topics such as eating disorders, the adolescent years, marriage counselling, stepfamilies, divorce therapy, communication difficulties, and conflicts with dual career couples.
The smorgasbord of interventions found in this book include bibliotherapy, use of touch, creative use of space, ritual enactment, gift-giving, storytelling and countless other interventions both revolutionary and common sense, to enhance and improve your therapy with families.
