Clinicians who work with families will find in this book a rigorous and creative approach to interviewing and intervention.

While pointing to the essential creativity of the therapeutic enterprise, the book presents a structured approach to working with families. Each chapter focuses on one part of the family-therapy process, from first session to last. Core practices - engagement, the questioning process, the use of the self in therapy, establishing parental hierarchy, establishing safety while building the therapeutic relationship, dealing with breached relationships, couple sessions, family-of-origin sessions, and working with adolescents, smaller children, and the wider system are emphasised. Therapeutic interactions and case studies are a feature.

Paul Rhodes and Andrew Wallis have brought together a group of authors who share their commitment to innovative and contextual practice, grounded in systemic family therapy, but drawing on a variety of other models, including structural family therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, and narrative therapy.

Experienced clinicians - from social work, counselling, psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, and other disciplines who do not see themselves as family therapists, but who work with families and wish to develop their interviewing and intervention skills, will find the book helpful. Beginning therapists, facing a challenging learning process, will benefit from the structured approach.
