This popular text helps students and clinicians build essential skills common to all family interventions.

'The active verb in the title is for real: this is a book about what to do, how and why to do it, and how to make it succeed. In case after rich case, Taibbi provides the often-ignored small details and observations that make the difference between success and failure. Especially useful for young therapists eager to master family therapy, Doing Family Therapy, Second Edition, is an amazing trove of clinical wisdom, logistical clarity, and personal integrity. Of all the family therapy books out there, this may be the most useful, focused, practical one of them all.' - David B. Waters, PhD, Department of Family Medicine, University of Virginia, USA
'A wonderful combination of pragmatic suggestions and inspiration for therapists for living a balanced personal and professional life. The strategies and advice provided are solid and easily understandable, but not superficial. This is an excellent guide for use in beginning family therapy courses, as well as wonderful reading for those in the trenches who need specific interventions or new perspectives to enhance their professional survival and growth.' - Carol Anderson, PhD, Western Psychiatric Institute and University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, USA
'For both the novice and the seasoned family therapist, Doing Family Therapy, Second Edition, is a must read. In a lucid, simple style, Taibbi explores and reveals the profound complexity of how to be an effective family therapist in this new era of changing family structures, diverse family cultures, and the huge array of possible treatment approaches. A wealth of case examples and personal exercises encourage readers to delve into their own experience as both clinicians and as members of their own family systems, in order to more fully understand their impact on the people they treat. I will make this book required reading for all my students and treasure it for myself.' - David C. Treadway, PhD, private practice, Weston, Massachusetts, USA
