"[The book], developed out of Salvador Minuchin's acute clinical observations, presents a map of structural theory and a set of guidelines which have led to astonishingly effective changes in dysfunctional families. What may seem simple in Minuchin's approach is often uncommon common sense or the deep clinical wisdom that emerges out of intensive, repetitive study of family interactions and communications."
--Arthur Mandelbaum, M.S.W., Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

"The conceptual foundations of family therapy are magnificently articulated by Minuchin, richly illustrated by numerous clinical vignettes and by complete transcripts of five family sessions. [The book] is far away the most important single unified book to have emerged to date from the field of family therapy...It is a landmark textbook that will greatly facilitate the task of the teacher of family therapy and theory...Among family therapists Minuchin is recognized as a most original innovator, a superb clinician, and an outstanding teacher. He has been able to transmit all of his background and experience into this excellent book. Anyone who has a serious interest in family therapy today will want to have and to know this book."
--Robert A. Ravich, M.D., American Journal of Psychotherapy

"This book will be interesting to a variety of readers, and particularly useful for mental health professionals working with groups, family counselors interested in the dynamic of family process, and scholars of social psychiatric phenomena."
--Sylvia Clavan, Journal of Marriage and the Family

"There is no doubt that Minuchin has written a splendid book on family therapy. His thoughts are presented clearly and systematically, without short-changing conceptual and clinical sophistication. The book is a rounded, self-contained statement of structural family therapy that has much to teach the advanced therapist, of whatever theoretical persuasion, and perhaps equally as much to teach the beginner."
--Kitty La Perriere, Ph.D., Family Process
