A master of family therapy, Salvador Minuchin, traces for the first time the minute operations of day-to-day practice. Dr. Minuchin has achieved renown for his theoretical breakthroughs and his success at treatment. Now he explains in close detail those precise and difficult maneuvers that constitute his art. The book thus codifies the method of one of the country’s most successful practitioners.

Reviews:

“For the individual therapist searching for a better family model, Families and Family Therapy is recommended at the top of any list of acquisitions. It is doubtful whether any other family therapy publication today can match it.”—Contemporary Psychology

“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.”—Journal of Psychotherapy
