Product Description

Review

"The chapters on the schools of family therapy are very effective: clear, well-organized, up-to-date, and accompanied by helpful examples and tables."

"I use the Goldenberg [and] Goldenberg text because of its clear review and overview of some of the major models of Family Therapy. My students and I generally find the discussion of concepts clear and informative."

"The Goldenbergs do a wonderful job in creating a balanced presentation of family therapy approaches. I was initially introduced to the works of the Goldenbergs in my own graduate studies many years ago. It provided me with a wonderful introduction to family therapy approaches as a beginning clinician. Now that I am a "seasoned" family therapist and a full time professor, I want my students to learn from the best!"

"I have closely reviewed this textbook and love it. It is clearly written and is perfect for our first year graduate students."

Key strengths include: "a more comprehensive section on narrative therapy, cultural diversity was incorporated well, online/internet component, and enrichment workbook."

HASH(0xa0768f9c) out of 5 stars Rating is for the Kindle edition only May 15 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was excited to try my first textbook on the Kindle. However, I regret the decision for two reasons. First, this book is not available for reading on Kindle for PC or Kindle for Iphone. I did not know I would not be able to read the book from all my Kindle locations. Second, several of the tables in the book are not visible, replaced by "Text not available due to copyright restrictions." These are tables integral to the text. Now I will have to borrow the book from a classmate or buy it to see the tables. I really had no idea that purchasing a Kindle edition of a book might entail buying a book with virtual pages torn out of it. Definitely diminishes my enthusiasm for Kindle overall.

HASH(0xa076930c) out of 5 stars Don't buy the Kindle version!! April 20 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have a Kindle and enjoy saving a few bucks by purchasing the Kindle versions of books since I get them instantly and the price is a bit cheaper. I am running into a problem with my class because the electronic version of the book does not allow you to view about 90% of the images/figures/tables, etc. My professor specifically tests off some of these figures and I can't see them. I'm struggling in this class because of it, and it's too late for me to return the electronic version to buy the book version. Do NOT buy the Kindle edition!

HASH(0xa07692d0) out of 5 stars Basic Counseling Textbook Oct. 27 2007
By C. Evaul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a textbook for a graduate class in psychology. If you need to buy it as a textbook, then of course, you must buy it. The chapters are arranged in an order that explains the history of family therapy and the basics. It is a general textbook. You will need other books to get into psychotherapy in a deeper way. However, as an introductory text, this is easy reading. It is called an "overview" because that is exactly what it is.
My greatest advice for you is to not forget to use the website as a help to the book. The website backup materials will guarantee you to have a great grade in the course.

By Anne Pinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I needed to purchase this book as a textbook for a master's level psychology course. The book is well written, informative and covers many different types of family systems therapies. I intend to keep this on my professional bookshelf for future use.

By Liana Lowenstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is comprehensive, informative, and well-written. Provides a good overview of family therapy theories and techniques. For family therapists interested in integrating play therapy into family sessions, the following books are essential:

Play in Family Therapy

Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families: Practitioners Share Their Most Effective Techniques

Creative Interventions for Troubled Children & Youth
