This comprehensive text is organized into two parts, the first of which presents an overview of the history, development, and theory of the model, and its specific applications to treatment, training, assessment, and research. Part II includes the instruments and assessment tools originally developed by the authors during their extensive clinical and research experience. Clinical case examples drawn from over four decades of family therapy work enrich the text, and an entire chapter is devoted to the authors' own research findings, current research plans, and new directions in their work.

"This lucid and stimulating book makes the job of mastering the McMaster Approach far easier than it has ever been in the past. This is an excellent volume that will be the definitive, comprehensive guidebook to the McMaster Approach for many years to come." - Steven R. H. Beach, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Director of the Institute for Behavioral Research, Director of Clinical Psychology Program, University of Georgia

"Rarely, if ever, has such a comprehensive treatise on family therapy appeared. Anchored and guided by research, this book is the Holy Grail to a thinking, feeling and doing approach to studying, understanding and treating families, and to teaching about family therapy. It is must reading for any serious student of family function and family psychopathology." - Thomas F. Anders M.D., President Elect, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, M.I.N.D. Institute, University of California, Davis, USA

"This book is truly outstanding. It represents a major development in the coming to maturity of the field of family therapy. It is a very important and impressive piece of scholarly work, which embraces and builds upon other earlier models. I urge the purchase of this timely, impressive, and indispensable book." - William Vogel, Ph.D., in Psychiatric Services

"The results of these studies are spelled out in remarkably clear language. The answers to major questions, as is the case in any good research, generate as many questions as they answer. The book represents a current view of a process, a snapshot in the life of a dedicated group of professionals that will obviously continue for many years." - Thomas Roesler, MD in Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Vol. 2, No.2.
