Dr. Aronson's view is that managed care is not at odds with the goals and methods of family therapy -- in fact, it is a natural partnership! But the therapist must learn the language for it to be an effective one.
This book is a step-by-step guide to translating the precepts of family therapy into the language of managed care. Case examples provide illustrations of successes and failures in the therapist-case manager relationship. Succinct and easy to read, Inside Managed Care helps all family therapists, at any level, practice within the current reality.
