This unique guide brings together representatives of the major family therapy approaches to demonstrate the nuts-and-bolts of their brief work with couples. The time- and cost-effective models discussed are explicitly short-term--not long-term on fast forward--and detailed case excerpts and clinical examples highlight how each form of therapy is actually conducted. Noted contributors include Susan Johnson, Philip Guerin, Michael Nichols and Salvador Minuchin, Simon Budman, Andrew Christensen and Neil Jacobson, James Keim, and many others.
