Through detailing and examining the four interplaying dimensions of relationships, Contextual Theory gives therapists the ability to reshape human relationships and solve problems using the strengths of trust, fairness, and freedom. Not just a review of what came before, this brief clinical guide de-mystifies the Contextual Theory of family counseling for practitioners and students in language that is succinct and lucid in order to expose a whole new generation of therapists to this important approach to family therapy.
